Specific dietary recommendations are made according to stage of kidney disease and type of dialysis. There are Dietitians who specialize in this area, as it is a very complex disease when it comes to nutrition. In general those with kidney issues are told to limit fluids, potassium, phosphorus, and sodium. In addition, protein needs to monitored and it is important to make sure you are getting enough calories. Your dialysis nurse should have given some guidelines and I would highly recommend speaking with an RD in your area that is specialized in nutritional therapy for kidney disease.Being that many of the foods one puts into a NutriBlast contain potassium, phosphorus and liquid, I would hold off for the time being until you can sit down with someone who can help plan an appropriate diet for your specific stage and type of dialysis. There are just too many unknowns that prevent me from providing an exact answer so I want to err on the side of caution. Best of luck!

I have stage four kidney disease. I was diagnosed in 2010. I'm not or do not need at this point dialsis treatments. I will check out an RN but could you provide a listing of vegetables and fruits that are low in the following: potassium, Phosprus and sodium? I have real good energy still, no swelling in my ankles or other body parts. Some itching from time to time but not constantly. I have no shortness of breath, I Sleep very well and I have a good appetite. Your response will be greatly appreciated.
Of course at this stage I want to stress getting the advice of your renal specialist or dietitian...then... Here is a great resource that lists foods low in sodium, potassium, and phosphorus that might be good for you to include in a Blast or solo! In addition, the National Kidney Foundation provides some excellent information about nutrition and the various stages of CKD.
i have stage 3 kidney disease and am looking to lose weight and at best sustain my renal function i am a newbie
Well you are in the right place. I would recommend taking some time to look through articles and forums on the site. There is some great information on weight loss and kidney disease. I also would suggest seeing a dietitian, as stage 3 kidney disease can be a bit more complex. They can ensure that you are getting the right nutrients and your overall diet is helping to heal your body.
