What we consume is directly related to our level of health. The kidney aids in maintaining a healthy blood potassium level by excreting excess potassium from the diet.
Diabetics are at a greater risk for developing kidney disease. Hyperkalamia, or an unusually high blood potassium level, can develop when kidney sickness makes it difficult for the body to manage potassium levels (high potassium in the blood) (high potassium in the blood).
Healthline advises persons with diabetes or renal illness to cut back on, or avoid, these foods.
Sweet and starchy root vegetables.
Due to their high sugar and potassium content, potatoes and sweet potatoes should be consumed in moderation by people with diabetes and kidney disease. But soaking or boiling can lessen their sugar and potassium levels.
Lentils with beans
As a result of their high phosphorus content, beans and lentils are not recommended for people with diabetes or kidney disease.
Potassium is abundant in fruits like bananas, avocados, apricots, kiwis, and oranges. Due to the risk of a spike in blood potassium levels, persons with diabetes or kidney disease should use them with caution.
Meat that has been artificially created
Patients with preexisting renal illness or diabetes should limit their intake of processed meats and foods heavy in sodium to reduce the strain on their kidneys.
The leafy greens
Due to their high potassium and oxalic acid content, dark green leafy vegetables like spinach, beet greens, and chard can increase your risk of kidney stones.
