  • The 21 day "Daniel fast"

    I am a dialysis patient of 8 mos. I have been considering a fast of just fruits aand vegetables, no animal products. it is known as the
    "Daniel fast' from the Bible.

    would this be a smart thhig to consider while a CKD patient?

    Seeing that it takes a lot of fruits and vegetables to make up a a juice diet you may want to run it by your nephrologist first. Some fruits and vegetables are higher in phosphorus and potassium than others. It might make it slightly dangerous in high quantities. In my opinion it would not be a good idea. But make sure to ask your doctor.
