Details: I have stage 3 chronic kidney disease, and my GFR is 48ml/min. Can I eat collard greens, tuna and grapes?

Expert Answer

In stage 3, kidneys are functioning at 30%~59%. At this time, although kidneys are unable to do their work as perfectly as healthy kidneys, patients must begin to suffer from some symptoms and complications. Therefore, patients should follow a kidney-friendly diet plan that can help control these problems effectively.

The basic dietary suggestions for patients with stage 3 chronic kidney disease are low sodium and low protein. In this stage, most patients' potassium and phosphorus levels are still normal, so you can still eat collard greens, tuna and grapes.

Collard greens and grapes are common vegetable and fruit that won't increase the burden on kidneys and can help ease your kidney disease complications such as high blood pressure, swelling, and so on.

Tuna is one great source of omega-3 fatty acid that can inhibit inflammatory reactions within kidneys, protect the remaining kidney function and prevent cardiovascular disease. Therefore, you can prevent further kidney damage to some extent.

To be responsible for you safety, you had better make sure how many these foods you can eat one time.
