You can get baking soda and baking powder Phosphorus free. Look for it at your grocery store. If they dont have it there go to a specialty store or a store that is organic. If you order any thing on line they may have it. I got mine at Earth Fare which is a Organic Store. Amazon might carry it. I also use spices and some herbs, also Braggs spices and there vinegar for it is the mother vinegar which is better for you, for it has all the nutrients in it that other vinegars filter out. I do order a lot of my spices and herbs on line because i use organic ones and i know they dont have all the chemicals in them and they are usually cheaper.
I hope this helps.

Im starting to take control of my life today. I will take care of me, love my self., be good to my self, I am strong, i can do this.

I'm not aware of condiment issues except for salt, salt substitutes, celery seeds/leaves and baking soda. I use herbs and spices all the time. What else should we be looking at?

There are a few things we need to limit - sodium and phosphorous. Both of these things are highly toxic for our kidneys, because neither can be filtered correctly.

Dairy has phosphorous as does orange juice, whole wheat, some grains, and even a few veggies. I want to encourage you to check out the nutritional info here:
. You can pick and choose what pertains to your specific needs.

One thing I stay away from also is condiments! They are loaded with stuff that is no good for the body. I eat everything plain and have learned to enjoy the taste of the food naturally. This goes for potatoes too. I only allow myself one tablespoon of butter a week. I love butter - but the phosphorous is something I do not choose to have in my diet.

I do track my phosphorus, sodium, and protein. My phosphorus tends to be about 25.. the tracker lists 100+, my sodium tends to be under 2300 but over 500, which is why I flush my kidneys every day, and my protein is always under 60, but the tracker recommends 60+. I maintain stage 3 with normal readings. I will not change what I am doing - even if my doc says too. I take a stand with my health.

Please let me know if you need any other info. Caroline has great experience with nutrition also for kidney health. It is just that you need to find what works for you and get your results in writing that indeed it is working to maintain your kidney health.

I kept the dialysis diet on my refrigerator door for six months until I learned by heart what I can have and what I will not have. I hope this info helps.
