@carnes I also am borderline Stage 3/4 Kidney Disease. Currently I follow five limiting diets: low fiber, low carbohydrates, low fat, low dairy and low oxilate. I eat popcorn, rice cakes, rice, Grape Nuts, Shredded Wheat, bananas, strawberries, peaches, nectarines, pears (few), cantaloupe, watermelon, honeydew, oranges (few), green beans, peas, corn, cabbage, cucumbers (raw), onions, tomatoes, avocadoes, summer squash, carrots (few and most often cooked), asparagus, chicken, lean beef, tuna, fresh/frozen fish, a little pork, and a small amount of dairy from cheese, yogurt, ice cream and milk. The way to enjoy the foods you can eat is with your seasoning. I had very little available to me during a long hospital stay and watched cooking shows. Now I often check recipe sites for ideas: FoodNetwork, Cooking.com, Allrecipies.com, to name a few. I do put canned dry beans in my chili, but we only eat that a few times a month. I encourage you to check some things out and would love to hear how you are doing. Good luck.

11/18/18. Hi 2011 panc, I Appreciate your help. After my nephrologist visit yesterday I’m a bit depressed. He told me NO tomatoes, potatoes, oranges or orange juice, and No bananas. My potassium was high. What are the oxidation foods? That’s what I have to stay away from but I forget exactly which foods they are. I also have TBI mild traumatic brain injury, so I forget my point in the middle of a sentence , can’t remember the correct word to express what I mean at times etc, from an accident couple years ago. I have Hypertention (high blood pressure) so I have to watch my sodium salt intake. Which is what gives food nice flavor. Heart Disease also etc. I went to a Nutricianist a while back but she didn’t seem to know about kidney disease only diabetes. I went to another and the same thing. Thank you sooo much for your help. Are we allowed beans? and meat? I read we don’t need much protein and that’s what is hard on Kidneys.
Please keep in touch. 😊📖🌸

Does anybody no if 100% pomegranate is bad for your kidneys

Hi ,enjoyed your info!I notice you don't do beans or potatoes.

I also don't know what I can eat, so reading yours does help.I was about to cry, but I need to investigate this diagnosis more. Thanks for helping me realize there are foods that are acceptable.

I suggest you look into <kidneyhood.org>—–I am stage 4 severe–I'm now spending more time learning this program, my GFR dropped severely about 18 months ago—This program has turned that around–
