Tips for People with Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD)
If you have CKD, you may need to limit some nutrients in your diet such as sodium, phosphorus, or potassium. You should limit saturated and trans fats, too. Read the food label to help make healthy food choices for your kidneys.
Look for sodium on the Nutrition Facts label. Some Nutrition Facts labels will list phosphorus and potassium, too, but they do not have to.
