This book was written in 1985 (and printed in 1987)! That is almost 20 years ago and obviously not in line with today's knowledge about renal problems or failures. For instance, this book pays no attention/ignores "phosporus", the level of which a patient has to monitor very carefully to avoid serious additional health problems. Anyone with renal problems should review this book with their doctor before using any of its recipes, or better yet, the book should be totally revisioned or taken off the market before it hurts people.
Thank you for your feedback.

I am very happy with this cookbook...my husband has an inherited kidney disease and my son has inherited potential cholesterol and heart problems from hsi fahter's family...I have tried unsuccessfully to create meals that are healthy and appetizing and finally this book has managed to help me meal plan for us all...and since we are a family of 3, we will have meals to freeze or take to lunch the next day...I would recommend this book to ANYONE in need of low protein, cholesterol, sodium diets...

My mother was recently diagnosed with chronic kidney disease and told to reduce her protein, sodium and potassium intakes. The doctor's office provided no sources for preparing meals to meet this criteria, and a visit to a hospital dietitian was not very helpful for renal specific needs. We found this book through our own internet search, and have been very pleased with its contents. My mother recognized many dishes which she has prepared in the past (modified somewhat for the new diet requirements) and was able to relax a bit after the shock of her diagnosis. This book is one of her two favorites that we have acquired. I would highly recommend this book to people who need a renal diet.

I have had this book for several years, we have tried just about every recipe in it and they are all great! I get complements all the time on the wonderful food, no one believes that the recipes are from the Renal cookbook.
My grandchildren especially love the spaghetti sauce.

The recipes are good besides being healthy for a CKD patient. They are used by the whole famiy without complaint,eliminating preparing two separate meals. After being raised on meat and potatoes and having to change eating habits, this cookbook comes as close to "normal food" as I have found.

I feel that although this cookbook is a good resource for Dialysis patients that it can be improved with some updating. Nutrition and cooking trends have changed, not only for the general , but also for Renal Community. Some of the basic recipes are good, I have actually tried them myself. It would be nice to have a few ethnic recipes also, as this seems to be a very popular trend. Patients could also see that a favorite family recipe representing their ethnic origin can indeed be adapted to fit their renal dietary guidelines. This familiar association would only be an encouragement, thus improving nutritional status. Photographs of the finished recipe may entise the reader to actually try the recipe if they liked the way it looked. It could be a guide to the finished product for the beginner. Many patients have not cooked or paid attention to their diets at all up until the point of needing dialysis. I believe they would be inspired to try a recipie if they could see what the finished product looked like, and also a few diagrams for the steps neccessary to get to the finished product. The print is large in this book making it easy to read for patients. I included this cookbook as part of a Holiday basket for a patient raffle. The patient that won the basket said she never owned a cookbook prior. It gave her the extra encouragement to stay on the diet and now has recently obtained a transplant!
