I HAVE STAGE 4 CKD- WHICH IS BETTER WHITE RICE AND ENRICHED WHITE/WHEAT FLOUR OR BROWN RICE AND WHOLE GRAINS?

I don’t know of any information that says that different forms of rice and wheat have any effects on the kidney.  I believe that whole grains and brown rice may be better for patients with diabetes and kidney disease, but this relates mostly to diabetic control rather than kidney disease.  I am not aware of any studies in patients with Stage 4 chronic kidney disease and forms of rice and wheat.
