Asian dishes usually consist of meat, fish or poultry combined with fresh vegetables. This can make them high in potassium. If you are at a restaurant and on a kidney diet, ask for your food to be cooked to order so that it may be prepared without soy sauce, fish sauce or monosodium glutamate (MSG), all of which contain a lot of sodium. Order plain rice; it is lower in sodium than fried rice. Do not add soy sauce to prepared Chinese or Japanese food.
