Nutrition Intervention in Kidney Disease
Approximately one in nine Americans, about 20 million people, have chronic kidney disease (CKD), and another 20 million are at risk.1 Furthermore, studies have shown that:
- Up to 40% of patients with CKD are malnourished2
- The risk for malnutrition increases as CKD progresses2
- As many as 70% of patients on dialysis may be malnourished1
The following PDF provides more information about dietary recommendations to help patients with kidney disease:
