We look at Potassium and kidney disease, rules of restricting potassium, foods that are high in potassium, foods that are low in potassium, and more to help you with your kidney diet and kidney health. You should only restrict your potassium if your doctor has told you to do so. Otherwise, it can create hypokalemia.
