Let’s Talk About High Potassium Foods

When I read through forum posts, a lot of people ask about avoiding high potassium foods. They may have heard it on another blog, another forum, or from their doctor.

Today I would like to take a few minutes and go over what foods are high in potassium and how you should eat them in your renal diet so you know better where to start.

Why do I have to avoid high potassium foods in kidney disease? A high level of potassium in your bloodstream can cause you to have an irregular heartbeat or possibly a heart attack.

High amounts of potassium are naturally found in items such as oranges potatoes, bananas, dried beans, dried fruits, peas and nuts.
