In brief: Keep it low
For a person on dialysis, they need to have a low potassium and low salt diet.
Dialysis patients can not regulate potassium and salt very well, so they need to minimize these minerals in their diets. If they have too much dietary salt and potassium, cardic issues and and an elevated bood pressure can occur.
