Dietitian's Answer

Specific dietary recommendations are made according to stage of kidney disease and type of dialysis if applicable. 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 be 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 be sure you can sit down with someone who can help plan an appropriate diet for your specific stage and type of dialysis if relevant.

There are just too many unknowns that prevent me from providing an exact answer so I want to err on the side of caution.
