About nutrition counseling and therapy at Dallas Nephrology Associates.

It should come as no surprise that what you eat is essential to your health. The foods you put into your body have a direct influence on what is taking place inside of it. The leading causes of kidney disease are diabetes and high blood pressure, both of which are heavily influenced by diet. So diet plays a role in treating and managing them, as well, including kidney disease itself.

Just as many people eat their way into these disease states, eating the right foods is an important part of getting better and ensuring a longer, higher-quality life.

Treating kidney disease in Dallas-Fort Worth with good nutrition and healthy diet.

Medical nutrition therapy (MNT) is the use of diet and nutrition to treat certain chronic conditions. At Dallas Nephrology Associates, we offer completely individualized, evidence-based nutrition counseling and MNT for kidney disease.

Our multidisciplinary nephrology team in the Dallas-Fort Worth area includes registered, licensed and on-staff dietitians who specialize in kidney disease and diabetes education. Specifically, these medical-nutrition professionals create a unique, individualized MNT plan and provide the kidney-specific nutrition counseling you need to get the most out of your kidney care.
