KEEPING A HEALTHY DIET: Some patients, particularly those with high potassium and/or those who are diabetic, are not recommended to consume avocados and sweet potatoes. Not certain? You may want to avoid these foods entirely. Be sure to check with your doctor for detailed suggestions.

DID YOU KNOW… Each of your kidneys is made up of about a million filtering units called nephrons. Each nephron includes a filter, called the glomerulus, and a tubule. The nephrons work through a two-step process: the glomerulus filters your blood, and the tubule returns needed substances to your blood and removes wastes.
Preparing your resolutions for the New Year?
For a healthy body, exercise regularly and try adding more superfoods such as avocados, blueberries, sweet potato, and salmon. Healthy kidneys add up to a healthy body.
