Is watermelon safe for pre-dialysis kidney stage with diabetic,high BP? Dietitian comment: Yes but the portion is important to keep carbohydrates in balance. Also if potassium is a concern it's important to stay within the recommended serving size.

This looks very refreshing and thirst quenching. Can't wait to try this. It's also a way to enjoy having watermelon again without worrying about the fluid intake. Who would have thought about drinking it instead of eating it. LOL!
