Re: My Family could use some Spiritual support right now. - Update on page 29
The following website breaks down the information so that you understand why you need to make certain adjustments. It isn't so much about completely avoiding fresh fruit and vegetables, it is about monitoring how much you take in so that you don't get too much potassium, phosphorus or sodium. The good news is his body needs more protein while on dialysis, so, no need to toss the grill.

[link to www.kidney.org (secure)]

All vegetables have some potassium, but certain vegetables have more than others and should be limited or totally avoided. Limiting potassium intake protects your heart.

Eat 2-3 servings of low-potassium vegetables each day. One serving = ½-cup.
Choose:
Broccoli (raw or cooked from frozen)
Cabbage
Carrots
Cauliflower
Celery
Cucumber
Eggplant
Garlic
Green and Wax beans (“string beans”)
Lettuce-all types (1 cup)
Onion
Peppers-all types and colors
Radishes
Watercress
Zucchini and Yellow squash
Limit or avoid:
Potatoes (including French Fries, potato chips and sweet potatoes)
Tomatoes and tomato sauce
Winter squash
Pumpkin
Asparagus (cooked)
Avocado
Beets
Beet greens
Cooked spinach
Parsnips and rutabaga

Eat 2-3 servings of low potassium fruits each day.
One serving = ½-cup or 1 small fruit or 4 ounces of juice.
Choose:
Apple (1)
Berries (½ cup)
Cherries (10)
Fruit cocktail, drained (½ cup)
Grapes (15)
Peach (1 small fresh or canned, drained)
Pear, fresh or canned, drained (1 halve)
Pineapple (½ cup canned, drained)
Plums (1-2)
Tangerine (1)
Watermelon (1 small wedge)
Drinks:
Apple cider
Cranberry juice cocktail
Grape juice
Lemonade
Vegetables/Salads

Sample Menu
Breakfast
Cranberry Juice, 4 ounces
Eggs (2) or ½-cup egg substitute
Toasted white or whole wheat bread (2 slices)
Butter or tub margarine or fruit spread
Coffee, 6 ounces
Lunch
Tuna salad sandwich made with 3 ounces tuna on a hard roll with lettuce and mayonnaise.
(Other good choices for sandwiches include egg and chicken salad, lean roast beef, low salt ham and turkey breast.)
Coleslaw, ½-cup
Pretzels (low salt)
Canned and drained peaches, ½-cup
Ginger Ale, 8 ounces
(Cola drinks are high in phosphorus. Choose ginger ale or lemon-lime beverages instead.)
Dinner
Hamburger patty, 4 ounces on a bun with 1-2 teaspoons ketchup
Salad (1 cup): lettuce, cucumber, radishes, peppers, with olive oil and vinegar dressing
Lemonade, 8 ounces
Aim for at least 2-3 “fish” meals each week. Many fish are rich in heart-healthy “omega-3” fats. Tuna and salmon (rinsed or canned without salt) and shellfish are excellent heart healthy protein choices.
Snack/Dessert
Milk, 4 ounces
Slice of apple pie

This meal plan provides 2150 Calories, 91 grams protein, 2300 mg sodium, 1800 mg potassium, 950 mg phosphorus. 38 fluid ounces.

The recommendations on what to avoid are a bummer because potatoes have a lot of potassium. I did see a technique to reduce the amount of potassium by cutting them very small and soaking them. I am not recommending this because I don't know what his specific dietary guidelines are. If you are desperate here are the instructions. [link to blogs.davita.com (secure)]

One more post - Regarding mashed potatoes. The keto diet is a good resource for recipes that have substitutes for potatoes. Cauliflower mock mashed potatoes are very good and very much like mashed potatoes. You steam the head of cauliflower and then mash it up with cream and butter. Yummy, especially if you have been without potatoes for awhile.

When I had to limit potassium because of my kidneys, I used to cut potatoes small, bring to a full boil, strain the water, rinse and then boil again until soft.

Tuesday morning update. My wife went to back today after 3 and a half weeks off. Im home taking care of Dakota. He is eating a little better, around 4-6 ounce per meal and staying hydrated.

Still a bit unstable on his feet and using a cane to walk short distances, to the bathroom and his bedroom from the sofa where he spends most of his waking hours. He has dialysis again today. Three days a week for four hours a day.

Still haven't heard anything from the Kidney team at the hospital about a follow up appointment.

Wife and I went to our Home Owners insurance agent yesterday and reduced the coverage amount on our home, just to lower up our mortgage payment and free up some funds for his medicines.

Other than that we are just taking this one day at a time. Again we thank all of you for your prayer and support.

Hes eating cereal (corn Flakes) with 1% milk ( barf) for breakfast and fruit cups and such for lunch.

add; they finally got that bandage off his neck, he can now move his head a bit more. Gotta get some alcohol to remove that residue. At this point they do not want him in the shower with that Port in.
