Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Kidney disease represents a chronic, distressing, and debilitating diagnosis with relatively few treatment options and those options that are available are associated with a number of complications that impact deleteriously on the individual patient’s quality of life. Nutritional and fluid aspects of patient management are critical to the quality of life of the patient and the trajectory of prognosis. This chapter explores the relationship of dietary parameters to quality of life in the patient with kidney disease.
