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.

Everyone, I think this is the best place to celebrate my YAY! Happy Salsa Dance Day! I am still in hospital following a large upset for me (details in Just want to Talk) primarily treating bladder infection/autonomic neuropathy/high creatinine/low immunosuppression levels with high doses of IV steroids, IV antibiotics and secondary medication changes. Today my labs report eGFR of 37!!! That is the best it has been since before my pancreas transplant in January 2011. My creatinine is 1.42!!! Again the least it has been since 2 years following the pancreas transplant. My labs are all in normal ranges and the lowest of my high trends except for the Tacrolimus, which is still 12.4 when it should be no more than 8. I am confident that will come into line quickly now that the infection is under better control. Weaning off all IV meds has begun so discharge is in view.

And no . . . This is not an April Fool's joke. It's all real and good!

@2011panc You must be totally jubilant! That's really exciting to have such good numbers after having disappointing ones for so long. I can almost feel your relief from here in NH! I hope this continues and you are home and healthy in a jif.

It's recommended by most renal specialists for a stage 3 CKD patient to limit Na to no more than 3000 mg daily, K no more than 2000 mg, and P no more than 1000.

Hi, @bdade59. I went from stage four to stage three but had to increase water pill and it dropped my GFR back down to stage four. We're hoping it's temporary. Na stands for sodium.

The abbreviations I use in my free rough-draft recipe collection are cal for calories, P for phosphorus, K for potassium, Na for sodium.

@bdade59 Thanks for asking. Please ask anything, somebody here probably will know an answer and if not will try to find out.
