[Recording] Individualizing Nutrition Care for Kidney Diseases

Early intervention with kidney diseases is key to slow down progression and protect the kidneys from further damage as well as other comorbidities. There is so much conflicting information for clients with kidney diseases and often interventions do not happen until there are symptoms (at the later stages of kidney diseases). Private practice and outpatient dietitians often see these clients at early stages and can offer evidence-based recommendations to help clients manage and delay progression. With this webinar, we will provide practical tools for you to best support these clients with confidence.

In this 1.5 hour workshop, we will cover:
