The nurse is creating a discharge plan for a client with cholecystitis. The nurse should encourage the client to follow

  • a diet low in potassium.
  • a diet low in fat.
  • a diet with increased vitamin B12.
  • a diet low in phosphorus.
Number 2 is correct.
Clients with cholecystitis have an inflamed gallbladder and should avoid high-fat foods. A low-potassium and low-phosphorus diet is associated with the renal diet followed by clients with kidney disease. Increased vitamin B 12 may be recommended for someone with pernicious anemia.
