Our Story

After her MBBS, Dr Suneeti Khandekar joined clinical nutrition for the sheer love of it. Various community projects brought her closer to understanding the diffculties being faced by nutritionists. During Practice of Renal Nutrition, she realized the lack of basic awareness in the patient population regarding basic tenets of a healthy diet. The result was "Indian Diets In Kidney Diseases", a patient centric diet book for kidney ailments. It was soon translated to Hindi as "Kidney Ka Swasthya, Hindustani Swaad Ke Saath".

This portal is actually the fruit of her long held desire and a means to fulfill her mission to spread the skill to upcoming nutritionists to enable them to practice Renal Nutrition with ease and confidence.

Dr Ashwinikumar Khandekar started his Nephrology Practice in Central India in 2008. Given a strong desire to educate patients, his first efforts included a website creation with information on kidney diseases. He went on to add YouTube videos which has attracted thousands of subscribers till date.

With this portal, he now vows to extend the knowledge to the budding nutritionists to help them understand and practice a complex area of clinical nutrition.

The pandemic era has removed boundaries on spreading education and enhancing skills by ushering in a digital revolution of an unprecedented scale ! We welcome you to lap up this opportunity to enhance your renal nutrition skills and take your nutrition practice to the highest level !!
