KWF launches a series of videos focusing on Diet Management in CKD.
KWF felt the pressing need to disseminate the information in our book Nutritional Secrets among a wider audience, so that a larger number of patients and caregivers can benefit from the abundant information it contains. To achieve this goal, Nutritional Secrets is being shared in the form of a series of videos, where dieticians and experts speak about the different components of a diet suitable for kidney patients. The series begins with a video featuring an Introduction, followed by a Promotion showing the usability of the book, and goes on to present information about the various elements of a diet, namely, macronutrients and micronutrients such as Protein and Carbohydrates, Sodium, Phosphorus, Potassium, Fluid, Fiber and Fats.
This enormous venture is supported by Biocon Biologics, NU Hospitals, Manipal Hospitals and Sapiens Health Foundation, without whom this release would not have been feasible. India’s topmost nephrologists, Dr D S Rana, Dr Bhupendra Gandhi, Dr Sanjay Aggarwal, Dr Vijay Kher, Dr Umesh Khanna, Dr Rajan Ravichandran, among many others, have endorsed the book’s content and encouraged our effort at every stage. We extend our heartfelt gratitude to clinical dieticians Ms Suneetha Rao, Ms Mrinal Pandit, Ms Shalini Arvind, Ms Swathi Sreekanta, Ms Uma Maheshwari, Ms Geetha Dharmatti, Ms Zamrud Patel and Ms Rima Rao for their expert inputs and contributions to the book, and also for making the videos. Our videos are promoted by Ms Anjali Uthup Kurian, while the book is endorsed by Dr Prashant Dheerendra, Dr Arvind Canchi, Dr Krithika Mohan, and clinical dietician Ms Subhasree Ray. Ms Geetha Menon, caregiver and book user affirms the value of the book.
