Stage 3 Kidney Disease and Diet: What can I eat?

@carnes I’m type 1 Diabetic and have CKD (wavering between stage 3 & stage 4). I have an autonomic neuropathy complication called gastroparesis that gets aggravated by high fiber foods, particularly legumes & cabbage. I’ve been blessed to not have food allergies and I’m not a picky eater at all. I’ve been on a carb:insulin counting low sodium diet for a long time. I generally avoid fat and go with a moderate amount of lean protein. I’ve had pretransplant (kidney) evaluations and reviews. The nutritionists tell me to “eat for the kidney labs”. My nephrologist monitors labs and I currently have no restrictions such as potassium or phosphorus. The thing that was most helpful for me was seeing a dietician to figure out the requirements of my medical conditions as they came up and develop a plan that worked for me.

I would love to hear a few things of your plan,I have 1 kidney..Ima stage 3,I heard..not to do posstaum ,or phou…much…Ima so confused..

If you like garlic….I have found that McCormick Perfect Pinch Garlic and Herb SALT FREE seasoning is great on lots of things. I almost always use it on meat. For broccoli or cauliflower a squeeze of lemon seems to make it seem sweeter and adds another layer of flavor. I also like slicing a tomato, topping it with a slice of fresh mozzarella and some avocado and putting an oil and balsamic vinegar dressing on it. The balsamic vinegar is the key here. Not sure if these are good for diabetic but they work for me (level 3 kidney).

Thank you so much
