Managing Kidney Disease: Maybe Mom's Meals New Renal Menu Can Help
Date:1/8/2013

Des Moines, IA (PRWEB) January 08, 2013

Diets for weight loss are challenging enough, but what about for those on a restricted diet for kidney disease, diabetes, or heart disease? Avoiding certain foods under those conditions can be a life or death scenario.

One of the top problems facing aging Americans today is living with restricted diets and still meeting essential nutritional needs.

Often, diseases and medications require strict dietary restrictions, and many of those aging in place are not equipped to manage these complicated dietary plans – especially on their own.

One example of this challenge is the dietary needs of those with kidney disease that have been put on renal diets. Kidney disease affects more than 26 million Americans, many of whom undergo several dialysis treatments each week. With this enormous time commitment added to the complicated dietary restrictions, many seniors find it difficult to manage daily life, let alone eat well.

For those on a renal diet, it is vital for meals to have the right amounts of potassium and phosphorous levels. Because many seniors struggle to manage this complicated equation, solutions are not always clear. One option may be a meal delivery service like Mom’s Meals, which recently introduced a new line of renal meals, offering several options that fit these specialized and restricted diets.

Rick Anderson, President of Mom’s Meals understands how challenging sticking to a restricted diet can be for seniors, “Creating a menu for those with kidney disease was a natural for us since we have a dedicated nutritional services team which includes Registered Dieticians and chefs who develop diabetic-friendly and heart-healthy meals already.”

Mom’s Meals helps eliminate the challenge by using its team of experts to design a renal-friendly menu using the National Kidney Foundation guidelines for the nutritional needs of most dialysis patients. All of the renal menu items offered by family-owned company provide the recommended protein amounts while still restricting sodium, potassium, and phosphorus, and maintaining great taste and flavor.

There are over 40 rotating “heat and eat” renal menu options offered, allowing seniors to select only the ones that sound appealing to them, and they are fresh-delivered in climate-controlled coolers.

Mom’s Meals, is dedicated to providing fresh-made, nutritious, home meal delivery to customers nationwide, specializing in senior and patient care for over a dozen years. The company prepares, packages, and ships ready-to-heat and eat meals directly to a customer’s door, delivered anywhere in the United States.
