A low potassium diet limits high-potassium foods. Most fruits, vegetables, dairy foods and fish are high in potassium, but especially rich sources include potatoes and sweet potatoes, fat-free milk and yogurt, tuna, Lima beans, bananas, melon, tomato sauce, and orange juice. Because many different foods contain potassium, you should reference a low-potassium diet, such as one from the National Kidney Foundation. The low-potassium diet is complex and can change frequently during the course of illness. For your safety, it is best to consult with a registered dietitian who specializes in kidney disease. To find a dietitian, ask your nephrologist or visit the website of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics at http://eatright.org
