Hi everyone, we are told not to eat tomatoes on a CKD diet and I havent for the past 6 years. I have just read a post from Mathea Ford, we’ll known renal dietician, to the contrary. She says fresh are the best source of tomatoes as they do not have any additives that can increase the sodium, potassium or phosphorus content. Whenever you are able you should stick to using fresh tomatoes in salads, sauces or more. Of course, this is ok only now and then, in moderation. A one cup serving contains, Sodium: less 35mg, Potassium 427 mg and Phosphorus 43mg. Any comments on this subject welcome please!!
