In brief: Low phosphorus

People on dialysis generally need to limit salt intake to avoid swelling.
Also you may need to avoid foods high in phosphorus and potassium. Examples of phosphorus rich foods include dairy products, chocolate, dark colored colas. Examples of high potassium foods include oranges, orange juice, bananas.

In brief: See below

Speak to your dietician at the center. Generally fluid and salt restriction depending on how much urine you are still making.
There are phosphorous restrictions.The dietician will prescribe how much protein consumption is right for you. Ask them about Albumin level in your blood. As a aside speak to your doctor regarding getting a kidney transplant.
