Salt is high in sodium, excess which will cause high blood pressure and fluid retention. In this light, it is beneficial for kidney disease patients to eat some foods light in taste.

In our daily life, foods like fish, lean meat, egg white, and milk are the major sources of high quality protein.

4. Foods high in calcium

Therefore, eating much more foods high in calcium like blackberries, date fruit, quinoa, broccoli and gis is helpful. In addition, some of these foods are high in potassium and for kidney disease patients, they need to consult their doctors before they eat these foods as some of them may be experiencing high potassium.
