    Hi texnanny, Personally I drink water, soda water (1 glass daily) and ice tea in the summer. A squeeze of lemon or lime adds flavor. If your labs are in the normal range, at stage 3 you are not that limited except for the consideration of your diabetes. Always consult your Dr. or Dietician for the final ok on dietary needs. Have a great day!

          I agree. What a great list of drinks, Marina! Tonia is right that you usually are not limited in fluid at stage 3. I would just watch and limit the amount of potassium and phosphorus that you drink so you don't over do it.

                I would like to suggest you cold water or you can just have lemonade without the sugar and it still tastes wonderful.

                          Honestly, nothing is better for the body than water. Especially for KD patients. I drink one cup of decaf tea with a squeeze of lemon in the morning. After that, I drink water the rest of the day. If you squeeze fresh lemon in the water it will alkalize it which has many health benefits.

                            Ice chips are a great solution for dialysis patients. This article has some more tips for how to quench your thirst, especially in these hot summer months: http://blogs.davita.com/kidney-diet-tips/?p=1996
