Kale is lower potassium cooked green. Potassium content ranges from 150 to 210 mg for 1/2 cup raw or boiled. Of course sticking with a 1/2 cup portion is important. You may be tempted to eat more of this tasty green, but remember a large serving can double or triple potassium intake.

If PKD patients have kidney stones, they are recommended to avoid taking kale greens, because kale greens are rich in oxalates, which have been linked with kidney stones and some gallstones. You can replace kale with other leafy greens not linked to this problem, at least occasionally.
