Foods to eat to keep creatinine level down
When I was waiting for transplant and was in Stage 5 kidney failure, I watched my phosphorus intake. That means no legumes, dairy or organ meat. I felt much better and was able to stay off dialysis while waiting for my transplant date.

Very helpful Thanks
@kimberlyharris, Welcome to Connect. Congratulations for being able to stay off dialysis before your transplant. I experienced acute kidney failure, and I was on dialysis before my transplant. I only knew to follow my nutritionist dietary suggestions, so I want to thank you for sharing youe expert experience.
How long did you maintain your limited phosphorus intake prior to your transplant?
How long ago did you receive your transplant? Do you still limit your phosphorus intake?
I want to invite you to the Transplant Discussion Group where there are members who are waiting for kidney transplants. . https://connect.mayoclinic.org/group/transplants/
Your experience can be helpful, and hopeful for those who are waiting for a kidney transplant. Would you share your story?
I look forward to meeting you there.
