Thu, May 2 10:12am · Foods to eat to keep creatinine level down in Kidney & Bladder

Lower protein intake. They say to eat lean meat such as chicken, and only about the size of a deck of cards per day. Also watch your phosphorus intake which is found in colas, beans, organ meat, dairy, etc. You can pull up a list on the internet. I was at Stage 5 waiting for a transplant and found that watching the phosphorus made me feel much better and kept me off dialysis until surgery time.

I don't know anything about it, but I'd like to applaud you for being pro-active in your health care.

But of course, I am not a medical professional. So, run it by your doctor, or nutritionist.

I would say at your stage to watch protein intake. Limit red meat- eat mostly chicken or fish. Give up coffee. Also watch phosporus intake which is found in dairy, legumes, and organ meat. You want to be as easy on your kidneys as possible. I went all the way to stage5 before my transplant and found that lowering the phosphorus really helped how I felt and functioned. At stage 3 – symptoms weren't really obvious to me.

Yes. Drinking water and reducing protein intake is easier on the kidneys. Also watch the phosphorus in your diet. Phosphorus is found in dairy, legumes, and organ meat. I was in Stage 5 kidney failure before my transplant. Cutting the phosphorus made me feel much better and, in my opinion, helped keep me off dialysis before surgery.

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.
