Become a CAND member
The Canadian Association of Nephrology Dietitians (formerly Association of Nephrology Dietitians) is a Network of Dietitians of Canada and consists of Registered Dietitians who provide renal nutrition therapy interventions and counseling in hemodialysis, peritoneal dialysis, home hemodialysis and chronic kidney disease clinics.

Individuals living with kidney disease can access a dietitian specializing in renal nutrition by referral from a nephrologist. Unfortunately CAND cannot facilitate dietitian referrals at this time. If you are looking for a dietitian in your area please see: https://www.dietitians.ca/Find-a-Dietitian.aspx or speak to your kidney care team about how to access a renal dietitian.

The Canadian Association of Nephrology Dietitians (CAND) network, is open to all Dietitians of Canada members who are interested in renal nutrition. Our major goals are education and networking. We are a dynamic team and always welcome new members.

The Essential Guide & Kidney Friendly Cookbook

The Canadian Association of Nephrology Dietitians is proud to announce that “The Essential Guide for Renal Dietitians 4th edition 2020, is now available. Click on the images above for ordering information.

Work began on revisions to “The Essential Guide for Renal Dietitians” in June of 2016. Since that time, a group of 37 Renal Dietitians have collaborated to create this valuable reference guide for all dietitians who work with people who have chronic kidney disease.

The Essential Guide has grown from 209 to 318 pages and includes the latest renal, diabetic and cardiac nutrition guidelines with updates to every section. In addition, five new sections are included to cover self-management support, the nutrition care process, pregnancy, the vegetarian diet and hepatorenal syndrome.
