Hi, What would the nutrients per serving be without the hamburger bun? I haven't made the recipe yet so I can't really rate it. I will give it a 3 since I want to try it. Dietitian comment: One hamburger bun has 122 calories, 4 g protein, 22 g carbohydrate, 2 g fat, 217 mg sodium, 54 mg potassium, 44 mg phosphorus, 63 mg calcium and 0.8 g fiber. If you subtract from the nutrients per serving this will give you your answer.

Have a hard time with 292mg of sodium is including the sodium from the hamburger bun or is this just the patty meat? Slider size may be lower overall - 2 ounce patties plus a slider bun is a good option. Dietitian comment: The analysis includes a regular size hamburger bun.

I use 93/7 ground beef for my burgers etc. it only has 250 mg potassium, something I have to watch closely. You may want to use this for a good option.

Is ketchup and mustard all right on a Hamburger? Dietitian comment: Yes it is. Stick with 1 teaspoon of each to minimize sodium.

Is there a reason for listing this twice? One with a pic the other without. Dietitian comment: Yes, there are 2 different portions (4 vs. 6) for those on a lower vs. higher protein eating plan.

Can my daddy have 292 mg sodium if he is dialysis and diabetis patient?? Dietitian comment: Yes, this is an acceptable amount of sodium for an entrée. A low-sodium meal for a 2,000 mg sodium diet (considered low sodium) is around 600 mg.

how would this be using turkey instead of beef?Dietitian comment: Great switch to reduce saturated fat and cholesterol. Sodium,potassium and phosphorus are similar with this change.

Sound wonderful. But flavor isn't all these burgers are full of. that a kidney-friendly potassium level?

Is the potassium content of 1 serving correct? Does each burger contain 458mg of K+, if so where does it come from? thank you Moderator: Yes this is correct. Each ounce of meat contributes 100 mg potassium. The remainder is from the onion and seasonings. Even the bun has some potassium.
