Fruits with potassiu: Dietary management is a key to staying healthy for someone with kidney failure. Your dialysis team will provide a specific set of foods to avoid or limit. They will also frequently measure your values of calcium and phosphorous, for example. Some of the foods to typically avoid include bananas, tomatoes and potatoes. Ask your team about more specific advice.

Low phosphorous: Phosphorous is present in milk, cheese, nuts, meats and other foods. Limiting the amount of phosphorous eaten and taking binders, pills that stick to phosphorous in the gut preventing absorption, is of vital importance for a dialysis patient. High levels of phosphorous are associated with itching, red eyes and over the long term vascular injury by being stuck into the walls of arteries.
