    Why do I need to be watchful of potassium and sodium? My levels are normal..

    Cause it could affect the heart my nutritionist told me. Plus I read it in this guide I was given to read dealing with kidney failure.

        I do not limit my potassium or sodium. I have extremely low blood pressure and was told I am not getting enough salt or potassium. I was tested 7 days a go.

            How do I find out what my nutritional goals should be for protein, potassium and sodium? I am stage 3B, and my doctor just told me my potassium levels are too high and I should limit it. I am so confused, not sure where to turn. Would really appreciate any thoughts you would have.

              Cut back on potatoes, bananas, cheese, and don't buy "reduced sodium" foods.

                Hi there, that's a great question. A local renal dietitian can help you determine what your nutritional goals should be!
