  • Honey

    I'm a new care giver so I am asking questions whose answers may be well known but not to me. Is honey ok for someone on a low salt, low phosphorous, low potassium diabetic diet?

    Yes it is. I have never been restricted on Honey as it does not contain Phosphate or Potassium in it. It should infact have nothing added (no salt) as it comes from the bees hive

      honey is a natural antibiotic and is very good for people I personally use atleast 2 tbsp in a cup of boiled water with a squirt of fresh lemon every morning-I sometimes smash up several cloves of garlic in it too -it is extremely good for people

        I love honey and garlic and know they are good for me, but together as a tea? Oh man Jenny, you are a trooper!

          Re: Honey

          I'm confused - when I googled honey it says it's a great source of potassium and phos. - so whats the deal. I also bought some Sunbutter (sunflower butter) to replace my peanut butter. The internet said there was no potassium in it but when I got it home and took a close look at the label it said 5%, same as peanut butter. So is raw honey free of pot/phos or not?! Is sunbutter any safer to eat than peanut butter or not?! Please help - I'm soooo confused my head hurts...

            Hi Billy, The food analyzer on this sitte says that 1 teaspoon of chunky peanut butter has 40mg of potassium and 15mg phos and 25mg sodium. Creamy is a tad bit less at 35, 20 and 25. I eat peanut butter sometimes but I'm stage 3 and my count is normal for these minerals.

            Honey has zero potassium and phos. according to the food analyzer. Better for you than refined sugars unless your diabetic than restictions apply.

              That's the nutritional info I found from Wikipedia about honey. It seems that the potassium and phosphorus contents are really low.

                    Re: Honey

                    I would like to find a SUPER juicer recipe to include as part of my diet. Maybe something to drink before dialysis to free up toxins and get them in the blood stream and maybe a recipe for after dialysis to replace the good things that are washed out in the process. Any suggestions?
