Katie Lee Joel to Conduct Free, Hands-On, Holiday Cooking Demonstration for Local Patients With Chronic Kidney Disease

"Although I adjusted my recipe for turkey breast served with cranberry sauce to specifically address CKD patients' dietary requirements, the recipe remains both delicious and appropriate for the holiday season."

In fact, approximately 20 million adult Americans have some form of CKD and almost 500,000 of these people have developed the most advanced form of kidney disease, CKD Stage 5, and currently are receiving dialysis. Almost half of newly diagnosed kidney patients on dialysis developed kidney disease because of diabetes.

It is important for people with CKD Stage 5 to follow a low phosphorus diet because most dialysis patients will develop hyperphosphatemia (high serum phosphorus levels in the blood). Excess phosphorus in the blood can be associated with serious consequences, including mineral deposits in the heart and blood vessels, bone disease and even death. Because phosphorus is found in so many foods, patients often cannot reach target blood pho
