This helpful guide provides a practical overview of the nutritional principles and pathophysiologic concepts specific to patients with renal disease. Physicians, dietitians, nurses and their clients -- diabetics, patients with nephrotic syndrome, those undergoing hemodialysis, and others -- will all benefit from the nutritional requirements and dietary guidelines found in this text. Now completely revised and updated for the Third Edition, Handbook of Nutrition and the Kidney is even more concise and more useful -- important points are bulleted and highlighted for quick reference and numerous tables support and clarify essential material. In-depth discussion is offered for actual dietary therapy of patients with renal disease, including menus and lists of supplements that can be used to enhance compliance. New in this edition: the impact of abnormal lipid metabolism; requirements for trace minerals and vitamins; and methods for assessing the adequacy of nutritional intervention in uremia.
