Foods to Avoid If You Are On Kidney DialysisWhen your kidneys fail, they can not remove wastes and toxins that build up in your body from the food you eat. Once your kidneys stop working, you may need dialysis to help clean your blood. The following are some foods you should limit if you are on dialysis.

1. Bananas

Bananas are very high in potassium. However, patients on dialysis may have high amounts of potassium. Thus, bananas and other high potassium foods should be limited.

2. Nuts and nut butters

They are not only high in phosphorus, but also high in potassium. You should avoid them.

3. Chocolate

A 3.5 ounce serving of dark chocolate has over 300mg of phosphorus. Chocolate contains about 150mg of potassium. It should be limited or avoided.

4. Salty meats

High sodium intake may cause water retention and lead to swelling. Kidney patients need to limit salty foods. Bacon, ham, sausage, hot dogs, lunch meats, canned meats and bologna are very hign in sodium. You should be careful with these foods.

5. Foods with additives

Foods such as deli meats, baked goods and soda contain phosphorus additives. You can read the nutrition label carefully and look for anything that has phos in the ingredient list. Sodium phosphate is one example of a phosphate additive.
