Hello I have stage 4 ckd, no diet restrictions (yet) and no dialysis (yet). Can I use coconut powder as a booster in drinking water?

You can find out the nutritional information about coconut powder at the USDA nutritional data base at:  https://ndb.nal.usda.gov/ndb/foods/show/62254?manu=&fgcd=&ds=

The use of Coconut powder has not been studied in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) as far as I know.  Based on my review, I don’t see a problem, but I would discuss this with your physician and nephrologist.
