Merging these two diets can be overwhelming. A lot of what you need to be careful with depends on your lab results and your current nutritional status. You should be able to continue to eat from the same food groups with both diets, however you may need to make modifications within those foods groups depending on your protein, potassium and phosphorus levels. I would suggest starting with your physician and discussing your lab results. It may be helpful to request a referral to a registered dietitian for a specific menu pattern that will meet your individual needs. Best of luck to you.
