My husband can drink Ginger Ale (Diet because he's diabetic) and Diet Root Beer. I don't think anyone could stand me if I had to give up coffee but he's cut back on his morning cup so that he doesn't have to further cut back on his water/fluid intake. The proof is in the pudding when he weighs in just before we start his treatments at home. Helps to keep the scale in the kitchen. He stays very close to his dry weight, if not under. He likes ice cubes and frozen grapes.

FYI: another benefit of doing home hemo is that your diet and fluid intake isn't quite as restricted as when you do in-center. The more frequent dialysis, the less restrictive. 


Husband has ESRD with Type I Diabetes -Insulin Dependent.
I was his carepartner for home hemodialysis using Nxstage December 2013-July 2016.
He went back to doing in-center July 2016.

I've kinda pretty much given up on the dietitians.  When he first started dialysis, they asked what he drank.  When he answered Gatorade, they were horrified.  No Gatorade!  High potassium!  It's terrible!

From the label: 45mg potassium per 12 oz (355 ml) serving.

And the Coke is not particularly high phosphorus, though it may be more bioavailable as an additive.

I suspect they are as susceptible to urban legends as the rest of us.

I love my nutritionist, she is awesome! I however would rather trust the USDA Nutritional Database.
