This is the diet I follow to maintain normal readings of creatin. This does NOT mean it will work for you. This is a Hemodialysis diet. I want to avoid a transpant and dialysis altogether.

•Eat more high protein foods.
•Eat less high salt, high potassium, and high phosphorus foods.
•Learn how much fluid you can safely drink (including coffee, tea, and water).
Salt &Sodium
•Use less salt and eat fewer salty foods: this may help to control blood pressure and reduce weight gains between dialysis sessions.
•Use herbs, spices, and low-salt flavor enhancers in place of salt.
•Avoid salt substitutes made with potassium.

Meat/Protein
People on dialysis need to eat more protein. Protein can help maintain blood protein levels and improve health.
Eat a high protein food (meat, fish, poultry, fresh pork, or eggs) at every meal, or about 8-10 ounces of high protein foods everyday.

3 ounce =the size of a deck of cards, a medium pork chop, a ¼ pound hamburger patty, ½ chicken breast, a medium fish fillet.
1 ounce =1 egg or ¼-cup egg substitute, ¼-cup tuna, ¼-cup ricotta cheese, 1 slice of low sodium lunchmeat.

Note: Even though peanut butter, nuts, seeds, dried beans, peas, and lentils have protein, these foods are generally not recommended because they are high in both potassium and phosphorus

But even the best of these years are filled with pain and trouble;soon they disappear, and we are gone."(Psalms 90:10)
