This is a very difficult question to answer without more information. Depending on the stage of kidney disease that he's in and what your husband's lab values say will influence how flexible you can be regarding food choices. The advice that I can give, with the information provided, is to go over your husband's lab values with his physician and dietitian. Ask that the dietitian sit down with you to help you map out a meal plan so it can accomodate your own nutrition requirements as well as help him adhere to a kidney-friendly diet.
