I believe that we need more patient for this study to validate it's effectiveness. Though it is true that not having good or not enough access to good quality food will result in BP going up and uncontrollable. Financial reason is detrimental for accessing quality food.

The hectic schedule of us Americans tend to eat more of the pre-prepared meals that is high in sodium and phosphorus, in short unhealthy. I agree that changing habits should start in the family unit and enjoy healthy foods together.

Disagree w/BP rec. NKF, AHA rec 130/80 for CKD pts. Disagree w/ amt of Na in tsp. 2.3G I believe is correct amt. I do believe that our dietary support of patients is inadequate for CKD population & prevention is always better than alternative. This is multilayer issue from food desserts, economic issues, educational levels, insurance & poor referrals from PCP or their lack of understanding how education can stop CKD process.

Education and dietary support is important controlling BP. Not having enough money to purchase nutritious foods and having to depend on process foods is an issue for some patient with ESRD.

We need to reach patients sooner, most of the participants in this study had advanced CKD. Screening and prevention is a key factor.

The importance of consuming healthy produce cannot be overstated.
