Almost all vitamins and minerals come from the foods you eat. Your body does not make these substances. Healthy people who can eat foods from all the food groups eat a variety of meats, grains, fruits, vegetables and dairy products. Your kidney diet limits some food groups, and therefore, you may not be getting all the vitamins and minerals you need each day. It may be important for you to take certain amounts of some vitamins and minerals in the form of supplements.
