Frustrations with dietary restrictions are among the most common and significant issues that patients and families have.
People often find it difficult to follow the diet, especially when foods that are a staple and a part of daily life need to be limited. For example, milk, potatoes, tomatoes, and bananas often need to be limited because milk is high in phosphorus, and potatoes, tomatoes, and bananas are high in potassium. Patients and families often struggle to cook healthy meals that avoid items that are high in sodium, potassium, and phosphorus, so it is important to speak with a dietician to get more information and suggestions on certain foods that you should and should not eat and healthy recipes that follow the diet.
