Are there recipes for people on dialysis who need to limit their potassium and phosphorus intake?

I am a dialysis patient and have a nutribullet. Before starting I asked my clinic dietitian to help me with the potassium and phosphorus breakdown in these nutriblast drink recipes.  A lot of items you recommend we use are ones that i must limit  or omit due to kidney failure. Too much potassium and too much phosphorus can be harmful to me. i need to know how much of these minerals s are in these drink recipes. I don't want to do anything that will cause me more harm than good. Please advise!

We are working on getting a nutrient breakdown for all of our recipes. Working with your RD is wonderful and they will be able to help you modify the smoothies you like, to make them more kidney friendly! It is hard to make recommendations without knowing your lab values and what foods may work best for you. Work with your RD to get a list of foods to include and foods to avoid. You may want to print out some of your favorite recipes that your RD can then help you modify.
