What the funds from the Kidney Walk support:

One of the biggest challenges for dialysis patients is diet and nutrition. 90% of Dialysis Patients in Alaska are on Medicare, not because they want to but because dialysis takes so much of their time. On a good day a patient may spend four hours at dialysis, but on a bad day it can take much, much longer. With limited income, the restrictive renal diet that dialysis patients should follow is challenging, especially the increased protein intake. One of the AKPA's major goals is to assist Alaskan dialysis patients improve their nutritional choices with a few tools – crockpots and stick blenders – and dialysis friendly food cupboards. To date the AKPA has distributed over 125 crockpots, 50 stick blenders and opened a food cupboard in Juneau.
