What is the best diet for me? I have end stage kidney failure and do diaylsis.

Hello there and thank you for sending in your question! 

Kidney failure (also known as end-stage renal disease) is a serious health condition thus it is best to discuss this question with your doctor who is more familiar with your personal health history and current treatment plan. I highly encourage to ask your doctor for a written referral to see a renal dietitian who can work with you and determine what is the best diet for you. 

I take my vitamins, in the morning... still on an empty stomach. I take a multi-vitamin, B-12, a calcium and magnesium and omego-3's, my question is... are the fat soluble's processed/adsorbed properly because I take the omega-3's?

Hello and thank you for asking! It looks like you take great interest in your health. 

It is generally advised to take supplements with a meal that has some healthy fats in it for best absorption of the fat-soluble vitamins (A,D, E, and K). Taking supplements with food also helps prevent an upset stomach. The omega-3 supplements do not replace a meal.

Could you provide me with easy and delicious gout-friendly recipes for all meals and snacks?

Hello there and thanks for the question!

Unfortunately, I can't answer questions about medical conditions over the internet. I recommend that you talk to your healthcare provider about this. You can also ask for a referral to a registered dietitian who will have access to your medical records and can help you develop a plan for your diet.

I have too much phosphorus in my body, but need to keep my calcium at the low end of the range. Can you tell me how to lower my phosphorus intake without compromising my calcium level? I have parathyroid issues.
