I am a 73 year old female that was recently diagnosed with stage 3 kidney disease. I also have CHF. While in the hospital, I was given a very strict diet and upon discharge the dietitian couldn't give me any guidelines to follow except for diabetics (I have type 2, treated with pills). I want to know if I can have tomatoes, pinto beans, fresh ham, cabbage, there are some other foods. I want to take care of my kidneys as long as I can without going on dialysis. I need a diet or some plan of what to eat and not to eat. At the present, I eat lean meat, white rice, noodles, carrots, green beans and other other leafy vegetables. My family want to go out and eat but because of the sodium and preparation of foods, we don't go out. I also need a guideline in choosing a restaurant and food to eat.

My father, age 64, has been suffering from coronary artery disease since 1995. Recently, he was admitted hospital with severe chest pain. After coronary angiogram, the cardiologist suggested a bypass. His kidney function is not good and because of this, the surgeon is now reluctant to do bypass surgery and referred him to a kidney doctor. He also has diabetes. His latest kidney report shows: Serum Creatinine 168 micromol/L, Serum Potassium 5 mmol/L. Now my father is taking the medication, Ketosterin for 1 month, as prescribed by the kidney doctor. Kindly advise if he can safely undergo bypass surgery with a serum creatinine 168 micromol/L. Also, please suggest foods that would be beneficial to his kidney.
