Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) has been recently included among the major chronic
non-communicable epidemic diseases because of its increasing prevalence, its
severe prognosis and its associated dramatic reduction in quality of life. CKD also
conveys elevated healthcare costs, nowadays unsustainable for many countries.
The loss of renal function and progression towards end-stage renal disease can be
attenuated and effectively managed by acting since the early stages with
appropriate multifactorial intervention, both pharmacological and nutritional.
The European Renal Nutrition (ERN) working group of the ERA-EDTA, addresses the
nutritional disorders that develop as a consequence of CKD and how their
management can result in better patient outcomes. In this second international
conference, we provide an in-depth analysis of nutritional management in non-
dialysis CKD. We will cover both nutritional strategies to retard progression and
nutritional habits to avoid other uremia-related complications.
Nutritional treatment of CKD is a complex therapeutic intervention that requires the
a multidisciplinary team work, including the work of nephrologists, nutritionists,
endocrinologists and dieticians. This Scientific conference is addressed to these
professionals, providing a timely and updated information on the relationship
between the nutrients, foods and kidney disease, and deciphering how their
interaction can reduce metabolic complications, retard CKD progression and improve
the overall health status of non-dialysis CKD patients.
