You’d better avoid high-potassium foods such as yams, potatoes, spinach, banana, apple, grape, soybean, fish, chicken and so on. On the contrary, you can consume foods with low-potassium, like celery, towel gourd, kiwi, tofu, milk egg and so on. However, you also are not suggested to eat too much low-potassium foods, because it will increase the potassium level and increase the kidney’s burden. Therefore, moderate intake is very vital to patients with high potassium level.
