The diet must be individualized and will change as chronic kidney disease (CKD) progresses. We will discuss dietary reference intakes, food groups and national trends in intakes of sodium, protein, phosphorus and potassium. You will look at the U.S. Department of Agriculture National Nutrient Database for Standard Reference, Release 23, to compare food items for phosphorus, sodium and potassium contents.

The Certificate of Training program consists of five separate modules that build on each other. To receive the certificate associated with this training, all five modules and related tests must first be completed and a subsequent final post test exam in Module 5 must be passed with a minimum of an 80% in order to receive the Certificate of Training. The Certificate of Training can then be downloaded and printed from the site.
Revised modules now reflect the following recommendations for CKD patients:
- Sodium intake of < 2,300 mg rather than < 1,500 mg per day (IOM, 2013)
- Blood pressure target of < 140/90 mm Hg rather than < 130/80 mm Hg (JNC 8, 2014)
- Initial antihypertensive treatment with an ACEi or ARB (JNC 8, 2014).
