When a person undergoes dialysis, their diet changes. There are many subtractions, some modifications and the patient has to be extremely mindful of what they put on their plate. While even an occasional indulgence is a no-no, there are other ways in which they can make their taste buds happy, while also keeping the health factor in mind.
