    I’ve read somewhere that too much (1-3 cups??) KALE, Uncooked can cause a reaction or problem for CKD, but cannot find this reference.

    I dislike the cooked taste of Kale, and spinach, but love them raw.

    how much Raw KALE is allowed for CKD low stage3-top of 4 (eGFR 32-29)

    1/2 cup of raw kale contains 6 mg sodium, 79 mg potassium and 15 mg phosphorus.
