Oh, and file this under “duh”…

Ale and beer are both considered foods that are high in phosphorus, something that I need to be limiting/avoiding (other high phosphorus items are cheeses/dairy items, beans, whole grain products in general, etc.). So not only am I supposed to watch out how much I drink due since the alcohol can cause problems with my blood pressure meds, apparently I need to especially watch out for beer and ale due to phosphorus.

Because, duh, beer and ale are made with whole grains such as wheat and barley.

Le sigh.
