Help with Kidney diet???

I'm hoping someone on this board can give me some information. I am looking for some information where I can find a list of what is in different foods. A member of our family has Polycystic??(Spelling) Kidney disease, the diet is limited in Fats,Cholestral,SODIUM,POTASSIUM,Fosfate s and Protein. We have tried Dieticians,Nutritionists, the Library and of course the Doctor, who tells us to talk to the Dietician and Nutritionist. There just doesn't seem to be any information as to what different food groups have in each, so a special diet is VERY HARD to follow. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Here is a link to the USDA nutrient database >>> [url][/url]

Just type a keyword like corn or beef for example into the search box and pick the food item/size you are researching. The complete nutrient profile for that food is presented.
