    Rice, white or brown?

    Some recipes call for wild rice and some for white but have seen nothing regarding brown rice on the diets for kidney patients. Can anyone help? Is brown rice okay?

    First off, rice is a carbohydrate and people with diabetes have to keep a tab on carbohydrate intake. If you are not diabetic then from I have read brown wild rice has a lower sodium content than white rice. As a matter of fact, the Davita site offers recipes for rice dishes; one of them being brown wild rice.
    Once a month, I will indulge myself (normally after lab work has been drawn for the month) with a small potato that has been leeched. To leech a potato, peel all the skin off, slice thinly (1/8" thick) and soak the slices in fresh cold water in the refrigerator for 4 hours. Make sure you use twice the water level to the potatoes level. This removes allot of the potassium that is found in potatoes and is bad for us dialysis patients. It allows me to have an occasion where I wont be eating rice.
    As always, talk to your units dietician for information on foods. They can be very helpful.
    Be sure to take your phoperous binders with every meal and snack.

    Here are some recipes I found. The only one I've tried is the scalloped potatoes and it was excellent. I soak the thin slices for at least 4 hours though with several changes in water. I also use unsalted butter instead of margerine.

    Try white sushi rice unwashed. Brown rice high in phosphorous.

    Try Dulse flakes which regenerate kidnhey function.
