In general, fruits and vegetables are low in phosphorus, but meat is high in phosphorus, and the high phosphorus diet can cause some severe complications, such as skin itching, electrolyte disturbances, etc. So patients should avoid foods high in phosphorus.

CKD patients may also get high potassium level in blood due to kidney damage, and the high potassium level can cause some severe side effects, such as irregular heart beat, heart failure, or even sudden death. So patients should avoid the foods high in potassium.

4. High quality protein

Due to the protein in urine and swelling, CKD patients should also limit protein intake. They are usually suggested to take high quality protein, such as milk, egg whites, lean meat, fish, etc. The high quality protein can reduce kidney burden and protect the kidneys from further damage.
