Welcome to healthcare magic forum
We need to see the cause of renal derangement whether it is diabetes, hypertension or else renal infection. Depending on the case, a dietician may be right person to give a diet chart, but overall, a diet for this kind of patients should be low in proteins, higher in carbohydrates, low in potassium. Fruits juices and low sodium salt contain high potassium and these should be avoided.
Take care
