I think I've tried before , but if I didn't , then i will definitely do that though, besides I've already starting eating a whole grapefruit a day since December the 6th , 2014,and that's for sure though.

I have Stage 3 kidney disease, is it OK for me to have grapefruit? Dietitian comment: As long as you have normal potassium levels eating 1/2 a grapefruit is acceptable on a kidney diet. However grapefruit interacts with many medications so you should check with your pharmacist or doctor before including grapefruit.

If you are on cholesterol medication, you do NOT want to ingest grapefruit. It can multiply the level of drug in your system to dangerous levels.

While this is an acceptable recipe for dialysis patients, you should caution that for those folks who have had a transplant (and we still love the eals and advice) and are on anti-rejection meds, grapefruit is a giant no-no!
