Many Lunar New Year goodies are not only high in sugar, but also potassium and phosphate that are harmful for those with kidney disease! Here are 3 easy tips you can follow as you go visiting, 1) Plan your day ahead — Have some high protein snack (e.g. meat dumpling, egg tart) before CNY house visiting. You may overeat these goodies with an empty stomach. 2) Eat this, not that! — Reach out for the lower calories, potassium, phosphate or sugar goodies for a less stressful festive period! 3) Drink sensibly — For kidney failure patients, bring along a marked bottle with you to serve as reminder. For diabetic patients, remember to choose unsweetened beverages, such as water, unsweetened tea for better blood sugar control and to prevent thirst.
