important jobs to keep the body healthy. These jobs include: getting rid of
wastes and excess fluid, balancing fluids and certain chemicals in the body,
removing drugs and toxins from the body and releasing important hormones that
help make red blood cells, regulate blood pressure and keep the bones healthy.

in the foods you eat may help slow further kidney damage. Certain nutrients such
as protein, calories, sodium, potassium, calcium, phosphorus and fluid may need
to be adjusted to meet your changing needs.
