As a chronic kidney disease patient, keeping your distance from others is necessary to reduce your chances of getting COVID-19. Maintaining a two-week supply of food means you won’t need to leave your house as often and potentially come into contact with virus carriers.
You might be wondering what types of shelf-stable items are safe for your kidneys, especially since many of them are sodium-rich. The Nephrology Associates of Cincinnati have assembled a guide to find foods that are generally low potassium, low phosphorus, and low sodium for CKD patients. Everyone’s kidney-friendly diet varies slightly based on their condition, so always consult with your care team if you’re uncertain about what’s safe for you to eat.
