Foods to eat to keep creatinine level down

@kimberlyharris Thanks, you're quite right about meats, dairy, and legumes. And hydration.

As a vegan, I eat no animal products whatsoever – no meat, no dairy, no eggs, no honey, no gelatin. Andt since I have CKD, I'm a vegan whose only legumes are about 1/4 cup mashed chickpeas in something every couple of weeks. I use almond milk but not soy milk and don't use tofu. A few processed vegan items I buy do contain some soy or some pea protein but I've contacted all the manufacturers of the foods I eat for potassium, phosphorus, sodium, and protein content so I know I'm under the NIH recommendations for CKD patients for all of those.

In fact, I'm writing a cookbook for vegetarians who have CKD and diabetes and every ingredient either is kidney and diabetic friendly or in amounts which are kidney and diabetic friendly. When I have the rough draft finished, my primary will review it then submit it to the medical school for vetting. Then it will be free to everyone.

What I don't understand is that I'm doing everything right and I feel great but my labs are crap. Go figure.

@kamama94 How wonderful that you're doing a cookbook! Looking forward to receiving a copy; I find doctors to be woefully inadequate when it comes to diet! Hope an answer is forthcoming on why your labs are out of sync!

Do you eat fish?..my neph told me it's ok..to eat fish..no beef he said…he told me low fat,low salt,no diet…but…I start sreaching on my own ways to keep my one kidney healthly..my D is low..my white count keep dropping..it's 3.4…now 3.6…I have had test but they can't find what's going on..I had kidney cancer in 1991..a kidney removed!I just heard yesterday that my Immune system may never be the same as I get older things are really going down hill..I ko you say you are doing all the correct things and labs are the same keep doing what you are doing,keep the faith,and hope.you never know! What good comes about!! Thanks for all your replies you are encouragement for me.

Hello! I hope all is well. I stumbled upon this conversation you were having with other members back in 2019. I'm curious to know if you ever finished your cookbook. If so, would you mind sharing it with me? I'm looking for recipes that I can follow for my mother. Thank you in advance!
