OMG I ate starfruit while I was on PD. I got a couple off a tree to try, as Id never had them before. Guess its a good thing they taste like crap!!

Ive never been told to "avoid" anything, more so to focus on portion control and total amount of potassium consumed each day. I did find it difficult to guage sizes of fruit and vegetables, which I think may have contributed to a couple of high potassium episodes. I would eat exactly or less of the amount I was allowed, but I will still getting high potassium levels. I figured my idea of a medium tomato must of been alot different to the version of medium that was writting on my sheets. After that I did avoid tomato because I was too scared to eat it. Didnt bother with banana either, as I can never stop at just a half a banana.

Just last week I saw a pile of starfruit (we call them Carambola) in the supermarket, and told myself I should buy some and make drink.  Laziness stopped me because I would have to cut them and then blend them, then strain.  GOOD THING!
I am going to mention this to the people in my centre.  We have lots of that fruit in the Caribbean.

$15.00 a kilo for bananas!  Around here they're usually 0.50/pound (about $1.10 per kilo).  You're in Australia, right?  I would think with the tropical climate they would be cheaper.

I like bananas when they just start to develop those dark brown patches because that is when they are the sweetest.  But, even I can't eat to many.  Usually not more then one or two whole bananas a day.

We had a cyclone up north where they grow and it wiped out most of the trees, before that they were heaps cheaper about $3a kilo

I only like lady fingers that are just going on ripe. When we were kids we used to get bananas off the farmers up the road which were double or triple, meaning 2-3 bananas in one skin. Oh god they were good!!! I hope the price goes down soon, I am really hanging for a banana smoothie.

I cut a small wedge down the length of a banana and fill it with peanut butter. Dont mind it on a sandwhich together either. Peanut butter is also nice spread in a celery stick.

No dried fruit - it's got tremendous amounts of potassium - for some reason nearly triple what the fresh fruit version has.
Chocolate and dark colas are high in phosphates.

The website called Kidney School has got a module about diet and nutrtion.  It's a pain that they won't let you skip ahead without answering the questions, but when you get to the end, they have long lists of foods that are good for a renal diet and sample menus you can print out.

That is because it takes more dried fruit to equal half a cup serving than fresh or canned fruit.

Such as it may take half a peach to equal a fresh fruit serving and may take the whole peach when dried to equal the same half cup serving.

Bigsky - serving sizes - of course!  I was wondering why the difference, and that makes sense.

I'm still going to go into withdrawal if I can't eat handfuls of dried cherries for a snack, though.  They're better than candy any day.

If I eat dried fruit I take into account how much equivalent of fresh fruit it is. It it pretty easy to eat way too much dried fruit as its so much smaller than fresh. I buy little snack things that have dried fruit, nuts, and coconut. Theres not much in them, and I figure just one of them should be ok. I tip it into a tub of yoghurt for a snack. However if I were on conventional Dx, I would ask the dietition about it first.

Here is a quick reply from the newbie.

On Starfruit...Starfruit contains a neurotoxin.  People with compromised kidney function/kidney failure are not able to rid/clear the blood of this toxin and it can cause anything from hiccups to cardiac arrest.  Reported deaths were of those people who drank the juice of this fruit (a high concentration).  A nibble may not hurt you, but it is not recommended.  I wouldn't want to put myself at risk.  It is often used as a garnish in salads and in drinks.  Looks like a star when you slice it.

Dried fruit like fruit juice of high and low potassium fruits is highly concentrated and will be high in potassium.  There are juices like apple or cranberry that are better choices, but portion size is the key.
