Medical Nutrition Therapy for kidney conditions

Searching online for kidney nutrition information can often lead to confusion and frustration due to the highly individualized nature of kidney nutrition. Shirley was appointed as the senior renal dietitian at Liverpool Hospital and is experienced in nutritional management of different kidney conditions:

 - Polycystic Kidney Disease

 - Glomerulonephritis

 - Chronic Kidney Disease (Stages 2-4)

 - Pre-dialysis kidney stage

 - IgA Nephropathy

 - Nephrotic Syndrome

 - Kidney disease due to Type 2 diabetes.


Shirley is also experienced in providing nutrition therapy for clients undergoing hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis.

Since kidney disease can be a long-term complication of Type 2 diabetes, Shirley can also provide nutrition therapy to help manage your Type 2 diabetes. Depending on your circumstances, a low-carb (or lower-carb) diet may be beneficial, and Shirley is happy to discuss which approach best suits you
