Description

Kidney disease is a global health concern that affects people of all ages and races. Based on the work of the National Kidney Foundation and the Kidney Disease: Improving Global Outcomes foundation, guidelines have been developed outlining the parameters for patient care. Nutritional Therapy for Chronic Kidney Disease builds upon the discoveries made by these institutions and expands upon their recommendations to provide a comprehensive guidebook with practice protocols for individuals with kidney disease.

With chapters written by expert authors drawing on their own experiences, the book:

  • Outlines the history of kidney disease and its treatment
  • Details the distinctions in nutrition therapy throughout the five stages of chronic kidney disease
  • Features precise recommendations for management of the complicated renal diet in acute kidney disease
  • Examines dietary concerns for pregnant women, children, persons with diabetes, and post-transplant patients
  • Discusses the common metabolic pathologies associated with kidney disease, including electrolyte and acid-based disorders, bone and mineral disorders, and chronic anemia
  • Includes chapters on obesity and physical activity, quality of life improvement in chronic kidney disease, and dietary counseling strategies
  • Reflecting the medical community’s emphasis on patient-centered care, this volume provides a complete primer on the importance of diet in maintaining kidney health and provides practical guidance to caregivers charged with devising nutritional strategies for kidney patients.
