I have a gp in renal failure (since January). We're going through the normal treatments of subq fluids, etc. and I have read on here that beets are a good veg. for renal pigs. My question is: How do you prepare them? Leaves only? Stems? Raw? Any info. would be appreciated. I couldn't find where specifics were touched on in other posts.
Dom also got 20cc's subcue fluids twice a day, rotating the injection site.
Beetroots are easy to get, and sometimes I have seen chard (mangold here), but the others can be more tricky, I guess. Will any of these do, or are other types better?
And if so, what are their latin names? If the latin name is known it gets easier to find the local name in "non-English" ;-)
