NutriGenie Renal Diet Software for Windows

This program is based on U.S. Surgeon General's and National Institutes of Health's guidelines for kidney disease dietary management.
Proper nutrition can help patients feel better, prevent complications and slow the disease progression. NutriGenie Renal Diet serves the specific needs of ESRD patients and allows them to conveniently monitor the protein, phosphorus, sodium, potassium, calcium and fluid contents of their diet.
The program has the sophisticated NutriGenie technology and unique USDA Food Pyramid analysis. It is an essential tool for any health professionals and a perfect companion to The MAYO CLINIC Renal Diet Cookbook.

Renal diet advice from the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases:

When choosing foods, you should remember to:

  • Eat balanced amounts of foods high in protein such as meat and chicken. Animal protein is better used by your body than the protein found in vegetables and grains.
  • Watch the amount of potassium you eat. Potassium is a mineral found in salt substitutes, some fruits, vegetables, milk, chocolate, and nuts. Too much or too little potassium can be harmful to your heart.
  • Limit how much you drink. Fluids build up quickly in your body when your kidneys aren't working. Too much fluid makes your tissues swell. It also can cause high blood pressure and heart trouble.
  • Avoid salt. Salty foods make you thirsty and cause your body to hold water.
  • Limit foods such as milk, cheese, nuts, dried beans, and soft drinks. These foods contain the mineral phosphorus. Too much phosphorus in your blood causes calcium to be pulled from your bones. Calcium helps keep bones strong and healthy. To prevent bone problems, your doctor may give you special medicines. You must take these medicines every day as directed.

NutriGenie renal diet software allows users to monitor the intakes of all of the above critical components in their diet: protein, potassium, water, sodium, phosphorus, calcium. Many renal care and research centers use NutriGenie renal diet software. A small sample is listed below:
