Doctor :   This is necessary in advanced kidney disease because the kidneys are unable to remove potassium. High levels of potassium can cause abnormal heart rhythms. Examples of foods high in potassium include bananas, oranges, nuts, and potatoes.
Doctor :   Salt restriction: Limit to 4-6 grams a day to avoid fluid retention and help control high blood pressure.
