- Why not add some tofu to your dialysis diet, if you like it.
Those who cook vegetarian or Asian style have learned to make it
palatable. From my dietician:
- Tofu 1/2 cup
- protein = 10 gm
- K = 150 mg
- Ca = 130 mg
- Phos = 120 mg
- Chol = 0
- It seems to be a reasonable supplement for those not getting
at least 1.2 to 1.3 gm/kg of protein in the diet.
