Low Potassium Diet for People with Chronic Kidney Disease

Are you sick of just giving patients a food list of “yes” and “no” foods for a low potassium diet?

This easy-to-read, visually appealing patient education handout helps patients put together entire meals for a low potassium diet.  Not just a list of high and low potassium foods!

Promotes a more plant-based approach to a low potassium diet.  Education encourages smaller portions of protein to help control potassium intake, rather than just reducing high potassium fruits and vegetables.  Recommends plant proteins in place of animal protein at meals.

Education Information Includes:

  • Explanation of why a low potassium diet is important for Chronic Kidney Disease
  • List of high and low potassium foods for all food groups, not just fruits & vegetables!
  • Information about how to find potassium food additives on food labels
  • How to use MyPlate to put together a healthy low potassium meal, and still encourage fruits & vegetables!

Also available as part of a CKD bundle, which includes sodium and phosphorus handouts.
