Ask to see a renal dietitian. Take a look at this book recommended by Barb   Food Values of Portions Commonly Used by Bowe’s and Church. You can calculate portions contained in this book. Foods that are high in phosphorus are also acid producing. Phosphorus is an anion—a negative ion. Dairy contains large amounts of phosphorus and is very acid forming. I find dairy to be a heavy solute which makes me incredibly thirsty. Milk must contain a large amount of sodium or something which pulls water with it. I find it very dehydrating. If you are longing for a glass of milk, try cucumber juiced, chill thoroughly. To my taste buds it resembles the taste of milk. Phosphorus is limited in the diet as the kidneys fail. The kidneys can no longer rid the body of adequate phosphorus. To aid the intestines to help eliminate phosphorus, phosphorus binders are prescribed. Your diet maybe limited to about 1000-1200 mg of phosphorus per day. I tended to overestimate size in my favor until I got an inexpensive postage meter that measures ounces. polycystic kidney disease polycystic liver diseasecontact us
