Dialysis and Transplantation: Dietary Management

  • Jacqueline Chami
Part of the Developments in Nephrology book series (DINE, volume 1)


Dietary therapy of patients with renal disease is of prime importance in their medical management. Many patients with chronic renal failure or undergoing maintenance dialysis are undernourished. This chapter outlines principles of management of nitrogen and caloric intake designed to minimize uremic toxicity and provide optimal nutrition.
