Potassium is required for proper cell functioning, regulation of calcium, strong bones and teeth, and for making ATP a molecule which provides energy to our cells, but people with Stage 4 Kidney failure should especially be careful with their phosphorus intake, since getting too much phosphorus will increase the stress on their kidneys, leading to calcium absorption and calcification of tissues, particularly the kidneys. Fruits high in phosphorus include dried apricot, dried longan, raisins, dried banana, dried jujube, dried fig, dried kaki,etc.

In Stage 4 Kidney Failure, you can eat some fruits high in vitamins, which can boost your immune system and protect you from various disease. Fruits high in vitamins include guavas, papayas, oranges and clementines, strawberries, etc. But this not means you can take them optionally.
