Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

What is proper nutrition to manage patients with chronic kidney diseases (CKD)?

In CKD patients, nutritional management is carried out with the aim of preventing its progression to ESKD, preventing complications associated with CKD, and replenishing the essential nutrients in just the right amount. However, with the recent aging of the global society, the aim of preventing sarcopenia has become important, requiring consideration, and the concept of dietary restrictions has undergone a change.

Presently, it is important not only to prevent the progression of the disease and live longer but also to consider treatment methods that take QOL into account so that patients can stay healthy. It seems that the appropriateness and meaning of nutritional guidance are also changing. Particularly, the degree of the restriction of protein intake has been recently under discussion for CKD patients with/without hemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis. We need to consider several factors associated with the nutritional status of patients with renal diseases.

The present Special Issue would like to invite both original and review articles that focus on the improvement of renal function and/or the prevention of renal function reduction through dietary interventions, not only during the preservative period of chronic renal failure but also in acute kidney injury and chronic glomerulonephritis and that focus on nutritional evaluations to achieve good nutritional status in dialysis patients, especially the elderly dialysis patients
