See the dietician! Diet can be problematic in dialysis patients/chronic renal failure patients. Many foods contain phosphorus; diaysis patients often take phosphate binders to help them excrete this. Kidney patients must watch calories, protein, and salt also. My best advice is to have a consult with the dietician at your local kidney center. They can help with recipies and ideas to keep you healthier.

Phosphate. Hi. How bad is your creatinine/eGFR? You probably need a low phosphate diet, phosphate binders (e.g. sevelamer), and maybe dialysis. What is your PTH? Probably high. You might need a vitamin D analog (e.g., doxercalciferol or paricalcitol) or cinacalcet. Talk with your nephrologist!
