It is estimated that 1 in 7 American adults (15% of the American adult population) have chronic kidney disease (CKD).
To put this in perspective, 37 million Americans have CKD while just 21 million Americans have celiac or gluten sensitivity. Yet most grocers have not created a special section or aisle stocked with kidney-friendly foods as they have for gluten-free items.
Those with advanced CKD have to watch their diet closely to prevent the condition from worsening.
People with CKD must limit their intake of sodium, potassium, and phosphorus.
