Diabetic, Low Potassium Diet suggestions

Diane in Bexley | Jun 11, 200808:47 AM     39

A member of our family, who has diabetes, has just been diagnosed with diabetic kidney disease and now also has to limit high potassium rich foods. The list below contains low potassium foods. Yes, it is long, but you will see it is limiting in fruit and vegetable choices. Interestingly enough, whole grain noodles and bread are not advised, but refined products are OK. Protein also needs to be limited to 60-70 grams per day. The recommended portions are 1/2 cup of ea item. Looking for recipes that are low in carbs, as well as low in potassium that might make the individual perk up because right now all they are seeing are the limits. TIA!
