Common Foods & CKD

People with CKD may need to limit sodium, potassium, and phosphorus, but everyone is different. In general, the total daily recommended nutrient amounts are*: Sodium less than 2300 mg, Potassium less than 2000 mg, Phosphorus 800-1000 mg (depending on health care provider advice).  To help you stay within your daily limits:

  • Check out the interactive foods tool, below. Be sure to pay attention to the amount of nutrients in the serving size listed for each food.
  • You can add food to My Food List to create a custom list of your foods and discuss these with your health care team.

*If your daily recommended nutrient amounts are different, talk to your doctor or dietitian to find out what is best for you.
