Nutritional Management of Chronic Kidney Disease
Since chronic kidney disease (CKD) may lead to a unique constellation of nutritional and metabolic abnormalities, a suboptimal nutritional status among the population with CKD is common, and this poses a direct risk for protein-energy wasting, disease progression, and increased mortality. Therefore, given the high incidence and prevalence of CKD and the urgent need for alternative disease management strategies, the patient-centered and cost-effective nutritional management with disease-specific dietary ranges may be a cornerstone required not only to simply adjust suboptimal nutritional status but also to help manage uremia and other complications. Moreover, it may help increase longevity and prolong the dialysis-free interval for millions of people worldwide. Nutritional interventions may be increasingly chosen as an effective management strategy for CKD.
