This session offers a deep dive into the complex nutritional management of people with chronic kidney disease (CKD), with a discussion on protein energy wasting and the impact that dialysis has on the complex paradigm of protein energy malnutrition and inflammation in the CKD population. It provides a review of the impact of the physiological changes of kidney function on nutritional status as CKD progresses. The session offers practical solutions and management of malnutrition and inflammation in CKD by utilizing evidence based practice with Medical Nutrition Therapy.
