    I've had the same problem with trying to determine what an appropriate diet would be for a dialysis patient. Generally, I default to whatever the dietitians in the clinic recommend, but have also found that http://www.dialysistechniciansalary.org/ provides some useful information on the topic. Many of the larger national dialysis organization also have accounts on pinterest where they include information about recipes that are acceptable for dialysis patients. I agree that it can be very difficult to determine what to eat when lab values fluctuate.

    I am type 2 and have been controlling my diabetes with diet & exercise. As a type 2 (or type 1) we are basically allergic to carbs and I gave them up about eleven years ago. My carb intake per day is 30g or less and keeping my b.g. controlled has benefited my stage 3 CKD, my gfr goes from 55 to >60 and creatinine is .83 at present. I agree it isn't a perfect world trying to eat for both ailments, but keeping my diabetes controlled just seems to aid the CKD. Following a lot of the tips on this forum (re potassium and phosphorous, among others) has been helpful also.

    I'm still trying to perfect the protein intake, which is a bit of a challenge when on a low carb moderate fat program. I find the low carb websites to be a large help when looking for recipes.

    can you tell me the book you are reading? I have both Type 2 Diabetes and stage four kidney disease. I am trying to understand how to eat well for both diseases. I am finding it difficult because the two diets contradict each other. For example, you are told to eat whole grains for diabetes and white bread and white rice for the kidney diet. Thanks!

    Hi Sunny - the fact is you will need to limit your protein. However, in regards to eating pastas, rice, and potatoes you will be much better off eating the whole grain pastas. Unlike regular pasta, whole grain pasta has unsaturated fats, fiber, protein, and the healthy B vitamins. Whole wheat also contains the endosperm which are the starchy carbohydrates that give you energy. Regular four is refined and eliminates all the necessary nutrients. The same with rice. Make sure to eat brown rice and for the potatoes try sweet potatoes. They are a little more rich in fiber. I really hope this helps.

    Ths is the exact question I have. My mother has rcently been diagnosed and I take care of her so it would really help me if there were some recipes for me to follow, instead of a list of do's and don't's .

    Well! A diet chart works when a diabetic follow a planned dietary fiber in his day to day meal.When it comes to type-1 diabetics starchy foods are recommended which can balance sugar fasting .This includes rice, pasta, bread, potatoes etc.

    Hi, my kiodneys do not work, they only work at around 22% and I have problems with high potassium and high phosphorous. Do you know where I can get recipes for the kind of diet that I should be following? Thank you.

    Dear Sunny,
    High carbs are out of the diet for a diabetic. Meat and low potassium vegetables are in. One favorite of mine is to cook cauliflower and make it like mashed potatoes with a little butter and rice Dream (orignal). Wilted lettuce also is a good side dish. Oli e and vinegar are ways to dress up vegetables and salads. Buy a turkey breast and slice it thin, put it in the freezer one-4 slices per bag and take it out during the week to munch on. Another idea is to Gramma13,
    use Sspaghetti squash instead of pasta for your meat sauces. If you have an Oriental store near you, in the cold section they may carry yam noodles that are low in carboydrates. Make a sukiyaki dinner with beef or chicken and v egetables and tofu(avalable in most grocery stores. Hope thi helps you out. I have had diabetes for 52 years and spend my carbs on special things I enjoy. I finally got an insulin pump. It is expensive, but worth every penney. May the good Lord bless you as you learn to deal with kidney disease and diabetes.
