With kidney failure affecting the African American population at nearly four times the rate of the general population, your listeners likely know someone facing chronic kidney disease (CKD) or someone living on dialysis. Kidney failure patients require special diets that restrict many foods typically considered healthy like broccoli, tomatoes and bananas, and also have to limit their salt.
Food Network Celebrity Chef Aaron McCargo Jr., star of “Big Daddy’s House” is cookin’ up some delicious, easy-to-make recipes that work for people on restricted diets. Chef McCargo has partnered with Fresenius Medical Care, the leading network of dialysis facilities, who have 20 clinics in Greater Detroit and help serve the over 13,000 dialysis patients in the state.
