  • Espresso Drinks

    I would like info on whether I can resume drinking my daily espresso coffee being CKD2. It is not tempered with water nor milk, just straight multiple shots of espresso. Other than higher amount of caffeine I see nothing different than regular coffee except I dislike the taste of regular coffee. Does anyone know about this? Thanks JC

    Usually there is no restriction on coffee, including espresso, in stage 2 CKD. It does become a concern if potassium levels rise above normal because 8 fluid ounces of espresso has 270 mg potassium. Even then, one could decrease to a 4 ounce portion and still include one serving.

      So there you have your answer JCrosbie. That was sure fast. Thank you for that RDSara!

        Thanks to RDSara....My personal espresso cup holds 4.5oz and at Starbucks their espresso pulls for 4 shots is @ the 4oz mark on my cup. Looks as if I must cut back from 2 quad espressos to one. My Potassium level is at 4,2 so could fudge, but I'll stay on safe side so I can enjoy the treat of a good coffee, Thanks again
