Webinar to Look at Kidney-Friendly Diet and Nutrition Trends

A good nutrition plan is vital for people living with chronic kidney disease. How much caffeine should you really have? What foods are best? The "Kidney Nutrition Essentials and Today's Trends" webinar helps answer these questions and more.

Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, July 14, 2013 --(PR.com)-- Kelly Welsh, RD, CD, is a renal dietitian as well as a Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) patient, wife and mother. She has conducted numerous nutritional seminars and educational meetings for PKD patients internationally. On July 28, her webinar will be shown free of charge to people interested in developing a nutrition plan that supports kidney health.

"There's a lot of buzz about certain foods and nutritional supplements. That's why it is so helpful to hear from a renal dietitian who understands from personal experience with a chronic kidney condition what we really need to know", said Shiona Mackenzie-Morrison, Hamilton Chapter Coordinator for The PKD Foundation of Canada.

"I'm sure anyone who wants to understand how to eat to promote healthy kidneys will learn something useful from the upcoming free webinar at St. Joseph's Healthcare Hamilton."

"Healthy kidneys help balance the amount of calcium and phosphorous in the body as well as help to remove excess potassium and sodium. When the kidneys are compromised, we need to pay extra attention to what we eat and drink."

Kelly Welsh is the author of "Brilliant Eats: Simple and Delicious Recipes for Anyone Who Wants to be Kidney Wise", a cookbook that shows how families faced with kidney disease can incorporate healthy eating into their daily lives.

This presentation is part of an ongoing series of two-hour informational support meetings hosted by the Hamilton Chapter of the PKD Foundation of Canada. They are open to the public, free of charge and the venue is wheelchair accessible. Local street parking (free) and hospital parking (payment required) is available.
