Renal and renal diabetic food choices
- If low-sodium, canned tuna is unavailable, look for the brand of tuna lowest in sodium and rinse under running water for 1 to 2 minutes to further reduce sodium content.
- Traditional ceviche is made from raw fish or seafood marinated in lemon or lime juice. Acid from the lemon “cooks” the fish. This is a safer version of ceviche for kidney patients.
- Substitute parsley for cilantro if desired.
- Water crackers and low sodium triskets are great replacements for the unsalted saltines.
