3 doctors agree

In brief: Hard to tell,

The stages of kidney disease are i, ii, iii, iv, and v.
Failure is a vague word if he is on dialysis is different than if he is not. Diet recommendation will vary according to stage of disease.

with any stage of CKD, would definitely try to stick to a low potassium diet as a patient with renal disease have a tendency to retain potassium that may lead to heart problems

In brief: See my diet sheet
