KidneyDiet®, a smartphone app designed to help people with kidney disease make good decisions about the foods they eat, was recently named as one of the “10 Best Health Apps” by Yahoo! Health.
Yahoo! Health author Lisa Collier Cool had this to say about KidneyDiet:
“If you’re one of the 20 million Americans with chronic kidney disease, your doctor has probably told you to watch the potassium, protein, phosphorus and salt in your diet. The KidneyDiet app provides nutritional data on thousands of foods, including brand name products and menu items from some chain restaurants, to help you make the best choices. Foods that might be harmful for people on a kidney diet are highlighted in red.”
KidneyDiet allows individuals with chronic kidney disease to monitor nutrients in their diet, in particular intake of phosphorous, potassium, protein, and fluids. KidneyDiet helps individuals follow the guidelines set by their doctors or renal dieticians. Using the app’s Daily Diary, patients can be assured that KidneyDiet will alert them when consuming too much of a particular nutrient.
