My wife had a brush with kidney cancer last year, and survived it with surgery. All of one kidney was saved, and most of the other.The Problem:
Her kidneys are not discarding excess potassium
as they should. Her most recent test put her at a reading of 6.7, high in the danger zone. The doctor has required her to eat foods with little (or preferably) to zero potassium.The Bigger Problem:
He's given her many lists of what NOT
to eat, but can't seem to give her a list of what she CAN
eat. I've spent days on the 'Net looking for lists of potassium free foods, but it seems that almost every website I've been to is for people who want to increase their potassium levels, not reduce them.
The doctor is considered one of the best in his field in this area, so I don't think changing doctors would have any benefit. I'm appealing to all who come here to share with me any information you might have that you think might help.
Thanks in advance -
