      You’ll honestly get a different answer from different people. The doctors I worked with at the University of Chicago would say “yes”. But, it is honestly just semantics. What is important is that we know kidney stones ARE important and there ARE things we can do to prevent them!

      You could definitely just sub egg whites for whole egg. I’d probably just add an extra white to make up for the missing volume of the yolks. If you cut the avocado, it might be hard to keep it together since there will be less “goop”. Honestly, mayo would be a much lower potassium option than the avocado, if potassium is a concern for you!

  1. Eggs can be eaten about 2 x a week at stage 3 renal disease. Of course limited salt. I miss the salt. Making salmon patties for lunch. Water crackers & Brie cheese.

      Everyone has different nutrition recommendations for kidney disease. Here is an article that goes over how a “renal diet” is different for everyone! My guess is you are able to fit eggs in to a diet for CKD stage 3A, but certainly ask your dietitian what is best for you!
