According to the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), 30 million people or 15% of US adults are estimated to have Chronic Kidney Disease. Many of them do not know they have it.

Adults with diabetes and/or high blood pressure have a higher risk of developing Chronic Kidney Disease. Other risk factors for CKD include heart disease, obesity, and a family history of CKD.

Chronic Kidney Disease happens when your kidneys stop being able to properly get rid of waste products in your blood. There are five stages, measured by eGFR, which is short for estimated glomerular filtration rate. It is a number based on your blood test for creatinine, a waste product in your blood. It tells how well your kidneys are working.

Stages one and two: In Stages 1 and 2 kidney disease there is mild kidney damage, but usually no symptoms. Your eGFR may be normal at this stage. But it is important to take steps to stop further kidney damage.

Stage three: With Stage 3 kidney disease, you have an eGFR between 30 and 59, moderately damaged kidneys and other symptoms from waste building up in your body.

Stage four: Stage 4 kidney disease means your kidneys are moderately or severely damaged and are not working well. This stage is very serious. It is the last stage of kidney disease before kidney failure.

Stage five: In this stage, your kidneys are severely damaged, and you must prepare for dialysis.

There's no cure for CKD, but management is through diet and medication. You will meet with a dietitian and a nephrologist to plan your treatment and diet.

Your diet now will have specific requirements on your daily intake of protein, potassium, phosphorus and sodium. MK Meals manages those aspects for you. Our meals are meant for people with stages 3 & 4.
