Associations Between Cholesterol and Fatty Acid Profile on the Severity of Depression in Older Persons With Nondialysis Chronic Kidney Disease
Depressive symptoms worsen the outcomes of patients affected by chronic kidney disease (CKD). The purpose of the present article is to study the association between serum lipid profile and the severity of depression in patients with CKD. We evaluated 132 older subjects with advanced CKD (stage 3-5, not receiving dialysis) in regular follow-up in a nephrology clinic. Blood samples were collected after an overnight fast. All patients were evaluated with the Geriatric Depression Scale which is comprised of 30 items that assess the severity of depressive symptoms. (Source: Journal of Renal Nutrition)

Culinary Medicine as a Core Component of the Medical Nutrition Therapy for Kidney Health and Disease
Culinary medicine, an emerging evidence-based discipline in medicine, nutrition, and public health, combines the traditional art and skills of food preparation with the sciences of medicine and nutrition to maintain health and manage disease states. Culinary medicine is an important component of integrative and alternative medicine and allows health care providers including dietitians and physicians to adapt a more patient-centered approach to management of chronic diseases, including kidney disease.

Effect of Chronic Kidney Disease on Metabolic Rate: Studies Using Doubly Labelled Water
The causes of protein malnutrition and body composition changes in chronic kidney disease (CKD) are poorly understood. Alterations to metabolic rate caused by CKD may be a contributor. Using the doubly labeled water technique and indirect calorimetry, we set out to determine whether reduced glomerular filtration rate is associated with alterations to total energy expenditure (TEE) and resting energy expenditure (REE). We also aimed to determine whether TEE in patients with CKD can be easily predicted from a physical activity questionnaire. (Source: Journal of Renal Nutrition)

Muscle Mass Assessed by Computed Tomography at the Third Lumbar Vertebra Predicts Patient Survival in Chronic Kidney Disease
Muscle mass is a key element for the evaluation of nutritional disturbances in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). Low muscle mass is associated with increased morbidity and mortality. The assessment of muscle mass by computed tomography at the third lumbar vertebra region (CTMM-L3) is an accurate method not subject to errors from fluctuation in the hydration status. Therefore, we aimed at investigating whether CTMM-L3 was able to predict mortality in nondialyzed CKD 3-5 patients. (Source: Journal of Renal Nutrition)

Renal Telenutrition for Kidney Health: Leveraging Telehealth and Telemedicine for Nutritional Assessment and Dietary Management of Patients With Kidney Disorders
Telehealth refers to the delivery of healthcare services from a distance using telecommunication techniques such as video and audio, mostly in real time but across different locations. During the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, mandated social distancing has led to reinvigoration and colossal expansion of telehealth. Telehealth is expected to continue through 2021 and even after COVID-19 pandemic is overcome, given its many advantages including its exceptional level of patients' and providers' convenience and high level of efficiency, while reimbursements remain comparable to in-person visits.

Precision Nutrition and Personalized Diet Plan for Kidney Health and Kidney Disease Management
Diet and nutrition can help improve overall and kidney health, but they can also cause kidney disease.1 Evidence suggests that high intake of dietary protein especially from animal sources may increase the risk of chronic kidney disease (CKD)2 in a similar way that high energy intake and presence of obesity often cause diabetes mellitus and cardiovascular disease. Once CKD is present, certain types of foods and other nutritional interventions such as a plant-dominant, low-protein diet or weight and body fat control can help slow the rate of CKD progression.
