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

Posted by carnes @carnes, Jun 11, 2018

It seems there is very little you can eat that is healthy for the Kidneys. The web site Davida has plenty of food on it but contradicts what other sources say. Anyone know anything for breakfast, lunch and dinner that does not have any sugar or flour bodies the obvious boring or bland foods good for Kidneys and I’m allergic to sugar of any kind of sweetener and flour. Thank you.

@fiesty76, Yes I do work at Mayo Clinic (9 years!). I work in Marketing and run their advocate program called Mayo Clinic Champions. It's to help those who've been to Mayo Clinic amplify their word of mouth about their experience. I really enjoy the work. Yes, COVID-19 has shifted our work and we're all learning a lot of new things, like getting to moderate for this wonderful Kidney & Bladder group.

@australia – We're always up for entertainment. And you certainly could teach everyone a thing or two about advocating for yourself as a patient.

@gingerw – it sounds like you have a good system down for following your healthy kidney diet and staying safe. What's the go-to snack for these trips?

@kamama94 – So glad to hear from you. So sorry about your pain and life-upending. Change is tough, especially when it comes with pain. I'm glad that you are still staying involved but definitely do what you need to to take care of yourself!

I'm wondering if anyone else has had pre-dialysis vascular surgery? What was the recovery like?

Georgia/Australia – Hi 2011panc –Thank you for your interest but I kind of "live outside the block" as I have discovered from my "different" approach to illness. I think for "most' my approach and ideas would amount to "entertainment". I have already noted in my geriatric friends around me, that 'nobody" will do what I do.– I am starting Prof. David Sinclair's Age Reversal — to improve the making and repair of my existing cells. Now who is gonna wanna listen to that? Listen, maybe -Do, NO!!.–I noticed the highest number of replys here are about kidney diet ?? So?

I read about Dr. Sinclair’s research. I hope that I can live long enough to get his medicine when it is finally released to the masses.

@TonyHart87 Hi, I'm still here, fighting ongoing yeast problems (partly from antibiotics, partly from diabetes, and post-herpetic pain that often goes off the scale. It's upended my life but am hoping it will get better a day at a time. Meanwhile, work on nutrition and recipes is at a standstill. Kidney function seems to have worsened, have a neph appointment and labs next week and won't be surprised if pre-dialysis vaascular surgery will happen sooner rather than later. Meanwhile, staying on healthy renal diet, not cheating (because I can have mashed potatoes with the new low-K baby potatoes delivered from my grocery store,) and remaining at home. Haven't had the focus or energy to post lately but I do read the posts.

Hi Kamama 94 from Georgia/Australia RE: PAIN MANAGEMENT. Went to emergency with hip 10/10 pain. Said I have kidney limitations so what is my top limit with pain meds.??? DA ! DA! they had not a clue. I gave them the phone number of my kidney guy. Your Nephrologist is the one to talk to about any pain meds. as he know the meds and level that suit your kidneys. And how to taper on and off levels of meds. Worked for me 100%

Hi Darlingtondoll, From Georgia/Australia. I tutor in biotech and physics — so I can understand the chemistry etc.of David Sinclair's research to a reasonable extent – I started his plan a month ago with the help of my BHRT doctor. Did anybody take biology in high school? Like Elon Musk, David Sinclair is able to put complex systems in simple terms.

To TonyHart 87 from Georgia/Australia. Well, what nice words -"advocate for ones self as a patient". Boy there are a lot of doctors that would have different words for me. One day I will get around to talking about how to handle sociopaths in hospitals if someone is interested.

Where can I read about David Sinclair’s plan? I majored in physics at Harvard University through my Masters Degree. I read about him in a Harvard journal, but I haven’t read about his plan that you follow.

@TonyHart87 I pack extra water, a couple of cereal or granola bars, a couple of apples, sliced celery or carrots. Don't have to use it all. If there is an extended trip planned, perhaps to my distant specialists [115 miles each way], a sandwich or salad. Town down the hill is about 25-28 miles away.

Hey @mikek206. I see you've been a member for a bit but this is your first post, so welcome! Don't we all wish medical research/breakthroughs came out faster!? What's currently working best for you with your diet?

To TonyHart 87 from Georgia/Australia. Have no food plan, I am not a "food interested person". Just lots of water.
