What are the best legumes to eat with kidney problems?


Q. What are the best legumes to eat with troubled kidneys?


A. It would depend on the kidney problems you are having. If you need to avoid foods high in phosphorus, then wax beans, peas and green beans would be the safest to eat. If you are having problems with kidney stones, then all legumes would be beneficial. It’s probably best to work with your physician or a Registered Dietitian in your area to find what foods will be safest for you.
