What food to eat? Kidney Failing, Anemic.
My grandmother is 96 and she seems rather healthy.
She has diabetes as well.
She goes on walks daily and isn't senile or anything, so she's mentally and, well I thought, physically healthy.
Though, I found out recently from a doctors visit she's anemic. Her kidneys are also failing so the doctor said while it isn't anything "urgent", she should avoid high potassium foods. But since she is also anemic now, she needs high iron foods. The doctor told her to stay away from green-leafed vegetables...which are her favorite. That's all they really told us...
Also...my grandmother is Buddhist...so..she can't eat beef.
Now I'm stuck wondering, what foods have high iron but low potassium? Since she can't eat beef, I can't really figure anything out. The diet of my grandmother before was purely vegetables, occasional pork, and lots of fish. She loves vegetables...I was looking at spinach, but found out it has rather high potassium. So now I really don't know what types of foods to buy her at the supermarket? I don't want to start buying her any supplement or vitamin pills or anything, I don't think she would like that. Thank you, any help would be the best!
