Would artificial crab meat (white fish) be an Acceptable substitute? Dietitian comment: Yes you can make the substitution. Protein is about 1 gram lower per ounce, potassium is 20 mg higher per ounce and phosphorus is lower. The differences will also vary with the type of crabmeat.

Following the recipe above could I substitute chicken for the shrimp and maybe another meat ? Don't like shrimp or crab. If so how what would the values be? Dietitian comment: Yes, you can substitute 12 ounces cooked chicken. Protein is the same, sodium is 24 mg lower, potassium 32 mg lower and phosphorus 3 mg lower.

Eliminate oil by browning flower in heavy pan over med high heat stirring until medium brown, pour onto plate to cool. Put chopped veggies in covered glass bowl, heat on high power 4 min, stir heat on high for 3 min. Heat water & broth to a slow boil, add cooked veggies, cook at fast simmer 5min. Add roux flower a little at a time stirring until dissolved. I prefer to cook shrimp only 3 min and add crab meat when green onion & parsley are added, simmer 2 min after adding. For added flavor I sprinkle a little file' over the rice serving & than add gumbo. Pass the Tabasco.

I love gumbo but i love okras in it would it b harmful? I am new at this Moderator comment: You could add 1 cup of chopped okra. This will increase potassim by 50 mg and phosphorus by 11 mg. A single serving of okra has 150 mg potassium and 31 mg phosphorus and is considered acceptable for a kidney diet.

Still don't know how many grams of protein I can have?? Moderator comment: Ask your kidney doctor or dietitian. Protein is determined by your size, nutrition status, labs and stage of kidney disease. We have several articles on DaVita.com on diet for different stages of kidney disease.
