Because the kidneys can no longer filter and eliminate waste products and excess fluid, kidney diets are focused on maintaining adequate nutrition and keeping minerals and electrolytes in balance. Renal dietitians work closely with individual patients to create customized diet plans based on treatment type, disease stage and related conditions such as high blood pressure and diabetes. The DaVita Diet Helper offers kidney patients recipes that are high-protein, low-phosphorus, low-potassium and low-sodium. Kidney-friendly football favorites include: Arizona Cardinals Barbecue Meatballs, Pittsburgh Steelers Teriyaki Wings and Super Bowl Super Burgers, all available in the Recipe section found at

Debbie Benner, MA, RD, CSR, and National Director Nutrition Services at DaVita(R) said, "DaVita serves as a role model for American health in that we work hard to educate patients about their nutritional needs in conjunction with respecting their individual preferences and choices to fit their lifestyle. The Super Bowl Recipes are just another way DaVita makes living with kidney disease more manageable."

In addition, the DaVita Diet Helper provides recipes for patients who have chronic kidney disease , but are not on dialysis treatment. These patients also need to limit their protein intake and offers several lower protein appetizers like Spicy Crunch and Munch Mix, Raw Veggies and Dip, Festive Pineapple Cheese Ball and Cranberry Dip with Fresh Fruit.
