Oriental Chicken Stir-Fry with Coleslaw Pancakes

DenAsia says:


I have a question on this. Wouldnt one think that a dialysis pt, be hesitant to eat this because of the high sodium,potassium, and phosphurous? As I have done research on Kidney Disease. It states for a KD or a Diabetic patient w/KD should omit, the salt,potassium and phosphorus as much as possible. How does this recipe help paitents? Moderator comment: This recipe has only 199 mg sodium per serving. The potassium and phosphorus both fall into our guidelines for a kidney-acceptable recipe. Most dialysis diets allow at least 2000 mg potassium and 800 to 1000 mg phosphorus. By using the nutrient values and counting a serving as the amount of meat and vegetables recommended most dialysis patients can include this recipe.
