    Hi Tony,

    has a dietitian given you any info yet??

    Youe big focus should be on phosphorus, potassium, sodium, and calcium.

    You can take a look at to get an idea of what's high and low in phos and potassium

    a couple posts on this site regarding this:

    also Davita has a great diet helper with recipes

    Take care!

    I received the GIFT OF LIFE on Nov 9, 2010 thanks to my wonderful donor Laura and her family!

      Welcome to our site. Here can be found some of the most courageous and dedicated supporters in the world. Not medically trained, usually, but battle hardened by the street fights with kidney failure.

      You rae due, and the government is paying for it, specific and individual education in the area of dialysis. Request it and if it is not provided contact the regional CMS organization. There are a lot of other things you are supposed to get but none as important a this.

      Good luck and God have mercy on us all
      May God have mercy on us all
