    I was just recently diagnosed with stage 4 Kidney disease. I have 2 kidneys but only one has been working for several years and I guess it is wearing out! I am at 25% of my use now with and elevated blood Creatinine and BUN & a K of 5.5 ok but not great! Thank you for opening my eyes to some of the info you have I was unaware of.At 62 and schooled in nursing it is refreshing to find a site that caters to Renal Problems like your site does! I will be an avid reader from now on!

    I’m caring for a patient on dialysis, he has heart and diabetes problems as well. My question…family members are clueless and look to me are there classes I can attend or can I talk to someone at the dialysis center with the families permission?

    Did you ever find out the potassium amount in sugar-free Kool-Aid?

    No I have been unable to find it. Next year the new labeling laws will require potassium on all food labels so we will know at that time.

    You can ask the dietitian at the center for general information.The patient must give approval for information related to their specific needs. Once this is in place the dietitian can work with you on their diet.

    Hello, is this liquid Kool Aid bad?

    No it does not contain phosphate additives and is acceptable for a kidney diet.
