My doctor has me on a low potassium diet because my lab work showed high potassium in my blood. What kind of cheese is low in potassium

Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

We don't have a list of brand name cheeses with lower potassium content but you are best off with unprocessed and/or soft cheeses.

Cheddar, cream cheese and blue cheese are good options. Keep your portions small and don't eat cheese every day. You should be looking at cheeses that have under 150 mgs in a single serving or less.
