My sister has kidney failure and is on dialysis and already has to watch her phosphorous intake. I was wondering if anyone has had any experience or has known anyone with this issue that has incorporated a paleo lifestyle, because I know that having a well balanced diet is important for these kinds of difficulties.

Paleo basics would be great. All nuts in raw from (whole, butter, or flour) are high in both phosphorus and potassium so she would need to take her phosphorus binders and maybe even get the prescription increased when eating these foods. Almond milk is low phos/potassium. Watch out for potassium rich vegetables.

Good luck!

High fat ketogenic with monitored and limited protein. work w the physician to find out maximum protein grams per day and keep carbs low to brimg on the ketogenic state.
