Nephrology Nutrition

Syndrome of protein-energy wasting consists of nutritional and metabolic abnormalities seen in chronic kidney disease. It is very essential to maintain a healthy lifestyle for people with renal disorders, especially if that is accompanied by high blood pressure, diabetes, or both. Control and maintenance of normal blood glucose levels can help to prevent or postpone diabetic complications, including kidney diseases. What we eat and drink may help slow down kidney disease. Dieticians could guide patients on how to organise a diet that is safer for the kidneys by considering the concentrations of protein, potassium, phosphorus, sodium, and how to read food leaflets and labels.
