Low Potassium, Low Phosphorus, Low Sodium, Diabetic Safe Foods?
Is there nothing that I can eat safely? I have been instructed that I must follow a low sodium, low phosphorus, low potassium, diabetic diet. I have been unsucessful in finding any lists anywhere that cover all of these restrictions! Please Help!

as long as you follow the serving size suggested, should be ok.
so, if it suggests only 1/2 cup of cucumbers, than that's it for the
day, remember also, mushrooms and cues contain water, so if you
are on a fluid restricted diet you'll need to watch food such as fruits
and veggies that are high in water content. Oatmeal is good, but
again, watch the milk (fluid) so quantity is very important.
Unless you are on Pd or home daily dialysis.

Thank you so much for posting this link Sunshine. I have been having the same problem of finding foods to eat. I have looked at a lot of guides, but this is the best one. It covers everything and I love how it give grocery lists. I am going to print them off and put them in my purse.

Thanks,
Shirin
What has been the hardest for me is that I am an organic, whole foods kind of girl and my doctor tells me to eat white bread and white rice and all this junk food IMO. The healthiest of foods is out according to my doc. "What I can't eat a half pound of Kale for dinner!" Anyways I am getting use to it. =)

glad you found it helpful Shirin Smile

I know what you mean when you brought up the healthy and non health
food. I am the same way, when I buy more whole wheat food for
example I'm told to I shouldn't, I should stick with white, I guess
it has to do with the phos, as I tend to go up and then really low,
it's complicated sometimes Rolleyes1

RE: Low Potassium, Low Phosphorus, Low Sodium, Diabetic Safe Foods?
my potassium levels are okay but as for phosphorus ,the nurses are always telling me it's way too high ,I try not to have to much stuff with a lot of sodium but it's so hard especially seeing that I love food Cwm29 fluid retrenchment is my major concern of late . I get dehydrated very easily so of course I tend to drink more than I should

Hi Sandra,

Toast and peanut butter I must agree is always a nice tasty snack Smile
the thing with peanuts is it has a blood glucose lowering effect, so
this the reason you should watch your intake, but there are options..
there are low carb, low sugar and no sugar added varieties of
peanut butter. I know you can find Skippy Carb Options Peanut
Butter, there's also Peter Pan no sugar added and probably more
varieties out there, I'm not sure what they taste like though, but
worth a try.

here's the link to low phos foods etc, let me know if you unable
to open the link again Smile
