This clinical update handbook aims to discuss and debate the impact of nutrition, describe methods for assessment of nutritional status and recommend the diet modifications helpful in managing various types of kidney diseases and dysfunctions.

The first chapter of this book describes the various components of a healthy diet when there is no kidney disease or dysfunction.

The 8 and 9 chapters describe the dietary modifications that are compatible with the two types of dialysis, hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis.
