    I see on rice labels that enriched rich has added phosperous but non-enriched does not although it is much harder to find and much more expensive. is there that much of a difference between the two or is it okay to use enriched rice?

    The phosphorus content is 3 times higher in enriched Rice Milk, but this can vary by brand. Average for unenriched rice milk is 50 mg/cup and for enriched rice milk 150 mg/cup. Read some of the blog posts about phosphorus to learn about benefits of limiting phosphorus.http://blogs.davita.com/kidney-diet-tips/?cat=10

    My diet is basically cooked rice, fried puffed rice, chicken, fish and egg white. But still my potassium is high. Please suggest.

    If your potassium intake is low and you still have high levels it is related to your kidneys inability to remove potassium. When levels are life-threatening dialysis is usually initiated.
