A 52-year-old member asked:
What do you suggest if my uncle is a patient with a CKD and the doctor prohibited him from drinking juices. I was wondering why?

Potassium: Some fruit juices contain a lot of potassium, some don't. Bananas famously kill kidney patients by the potassium load. Your uncle needs to familiarize himself with dietary restrictions for chronic kidney disease, rather than simply being given a list of do's and don'ts.
