Thank you so much for the "heads up" about Raspberries. I was getting ready to buy some and really get into eating them. The diets for CKD and Prediabetes are so contradictory and it's so frustrating to find the right balance for both health problems.

Raspberries are among a small number of foods that contain measurable amounts of oxalates, naturally-occurring substances found in plants, animals, and human beings. When oxalates become too concentrated in body fluids, they can crystallize and cause health problems. For this reason, individuals with already existing and untreated kidney or gallbladder problems may want to avoid eating raspberries. Laboratory studies have shown that oxalates may also interfere with absorption of calcium from the body.
