About this book


Nutrition in Kidney Disease, Second Edition addresses  the relationships between nutrition and (1) normal kidney function and disease, (2) the progressiveness of chronic kidney disease (CKD) and strategies to prevent further compromise, and (3) the treatment and management of kidney failure especially during medical crises, such as acute kidney injury and its consequent nutritional therapies (e.g., enteral and parenteral nutrition).   Demographic patterns, trends and outcomes in the current health care systems are explored in the United States and abroad.  Disease prevention and management are presented over the entire lifespan, beginning with pregnancy, followed by infancy, childhood, adolescence, and adulthood, concluding with the elder years.  Foundations for clinical practice are established by devoting a complete section towards conducting a comprehensive nutritional assessment, comprising of anthropometric, biochemical, clinical, physical parameters and psychosocial concerns unique to the kidney disease population.  Nutritional therapy is also discussed across the spectrum of kidney disease, and pertinent aspects critical to successful management of disorders and conditions, such as bone disease, obesity, and nephrotic syndrome are explored.

Nutrition in Kidney Disease, Second edition highlights cutting edge research in regards to exercise and functional outcomes, malnutrition and the inflammatory response, experimental therapies, and the use of complementary and alternative medicine, with a special emphasis on relevant preventative strategies.

From the reviews of the second edition:

“Nutrition in Kidney Disease, 2nd edition, is a practical text for healthcare providers working with kidney disease that offers up-to-date information regarding nutrition and kidney disease. … The text is written for practicing healthcare providers and students, HCPs and faculty with an interest in kidney disease. … it certainly would be useful for advanced nutrition students. … There are multiple tables and figures within each of the chapters, making it easy to locate key information.” (Amy Hess-Fischl, Doody’s Book Reviews, April, 2014)
