  • Any sites that can actually answer our questions??

    Not being snarky... just trying to find facts..... Anyone know of any sites that answer questions like the ones we post here?? I was hoping there were moderators or DaVita nutrionists that would answer our questions....... plus potassium, etc counts vary so depending on where you look... it’s all very frustrating......

    Yes I agree it's frustrating. I went through the same thing when I started dialysis 11 years ago. I have found that the truth of it is everyone is different and for me it was a matter of trial and error. The charts provided are a good base line and then you work yourself up, down, and around that. If you have questions you can feel free to ask me, and I can try to help you find reasonable answers or at the very least give you an example of how I affected my own treatment. I also have found a few sites to help me.

        I am a bit disappointed as well.. I asked a question and got a few comments but no answers. I don't think this forum (at least on the diet pages) is very active. Years ago, when I discovered I had CKD, I was in a forum called Kidney Space (like my space LOL) I am going to see if it's still active. I remember it was extremely active and very helpful at the time. It was purple lettering. Now I see one that's called Kidney Space but it's orange so I don't know if t changes colors or ifs its different. It was an awesome resource a few years back.. Maybe check them out. I will be..
