Potatoes are very high in potassium. Consuming high potassium foods in advanced kidney disease may cause high blood potassium levels, muscle weakness and heart failure. Dry potatoes well before adding to hot oil. If no salt added ketchup is substituted for regular ketchup sodium will be reduced to 7 milligrams per serving. (Avoid brands containing potassium chloride).
