During my advanced clinical rotation I had the opportunity to spend time at a renal dialysis center. I worked with the dietitian to evaluate patient lab reports and provide the appropriate diet education. For those who are recently diagnosed with end stage renal disease and beginning hemodialysis treatment, the renal diet can be very overwhelming. It is important to provide them with extensive diet education and to continue to reinforce this education at each visit. Patients can feel very restricted with the diet, so it is key to show them ways to be creative when it comes to meal planning. I prepared a renal-friendly chicken salad recipe for the patients, provided recipe cards, diet education, and cooking tips. It was a gratifying experience to be able to teach patients valuable skills they can use at home.
