My mother-in-law is starting dialysis next week and the kidney doctor told us that diet soda in general is a toxin and not to drink it. How is this ok? She LOVES soda and refusing to give it up so this would be a good alternative if it really is ok to drink. Dietitian comment: Phosphate additives in soda is one of the main concerns for kidney patients. Always check the label and avoid those with the word 'phos' in the ingredient list.
