Kidney diet : Low potassium diet only if high potassium in blood. You can look this up in Google for each food. Anything with more than 250 mg per serving is considered high potassium. Some examples are potatoes tomatoes bananas, oranges, all fishes. Chicken is the meat with least potassium. Protein has to be in moderation which is all meat fish egg soybean etc
