Engaging Nutrition and Diet for Primary, Secondary, and Tertiary Prevention of Kidney Disease: The World Kidney Day 2020
The concept of the World Kidney Day (WKD) was developed in 2006 by the International Federation of Kidney Foundations and the International Society of Nephrology. The WKD is a global campaign initiative aimed at improving education and raising awareness of the importance of kidney health and to help reduce frequency and impact of kidney disease and its associated health problems worldwide. Each year, on the second Thursday of March, and also during the entire month of March, the WKD is acknowledged and celebrated throughout the world with many diverse events and innovative activities including public health screenings, mar...

Breakfast Ideas for Patients With Chronic Kidney Disease
After the diagnosis of chronic kidney disease (CKD), a restricted diet may be necessary to avoid additional stress on the kidneys, as well as avoiding further health complications.1 With the vast information available on the internet, one can find countless recipes for every meal, health concern, and occasion. Recipes and meal ideas for CKD are no exception. However, one should exercise caution and use their best judgment when using recipes from online searches as not all sources are credible. In addition, while there is an abundance of lunch and dinner ideas, breakfast ideas for patients with CKD are in a seemingly shorte...

Impact of Dietetic Intervention on Skin Autofluorescence and Nutritional Status in Persons Receiving Dialysis: A Proof of Principle Study
Advanced glycation end-products (AGEs) are uremic toxins that result from oxidative stress and food consumption. It has been reported that markers of malnutrition are more important determinants of increased skin autofluorescence (SAF), a measure of AGE accumulation and risk factor for mortality, than high dietary AGE intake in a hemodialysis (HD) population, suggesting that correcting malnutrition may decrease SAF.

Safety and Efficacy of Using Nuts to Improve Bowel Health in Hemodialysis Patients
Constipation is common in patients with end-stage kidney disease. Nondrug strategies to manage constipation are challenging because of dietary potassium, phosphate, and fluid restrictions. Nuts are a high-fiber food but are excluded from the diet because of the high potassium and phosphate content. The aim of this study was to examine the safety and efficacy of using nuts to improve constipation in adults undertaking hemodialysis (HD). (Source: Journal of Renal Nutrition)

The Pathophysiology and Management of Taste Changes in Chronic Kidney Disease: A Review
One of the most disabling, yet neglected, symptom of patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) is alteration in taste. The purpose of this review is to examine the extent and content of research around this symptom in CKD with the goals of (1) identifying gaps in current research knowledge and (2) guiding future research. The review summarizes the basic anatomy and physiology of taste followed by analysis of the epidemiology, pathophysiology, and management strategies for taste changes in patients with CKD.

Nutritional Status and Mortality Predictability for Time-Varying Serum Alkaline Phosphatase in Hemodialysis Patients: A Longitudinal Study

A Renal Clinician's Guide to the Gut Microbiota
It is increasingly recognized that the gut microbiota plays a role in the progression of chronic diseases and that diet may confer health benefits by altering the gut microbiota composition. This is of particular relevance for chronic kidney disease (CKD), as the gut is a source of uremic retention solutes, which accumulate as a result of impaired kidney function and can exert nephrotoxic and other harmful effects. Kidney dysfunction is also associated with changes in the composition of the gut microbiota and the gastrointestinal tract. (Source: Journal of Renal Nutrition)

Exploring the Potential Relationship Between Phytate Ingestion, Urinary Phytate Excretion, and Renal Stone Risk in a Unique Human Model: No Hard Evidence in Support of Phytate as a Stone Inhibitor
Dietary phytate (IP6) enjoys a reputation as an inhibitor of calcium renal stone formation, although there are very few human studies to support this notion. In South Africa, urolithiasis occurs in the white (W) but is rare in the black (B) population. We undertook this unique human model to further investigate the IP6 theory.

As we begin this new decade, the Editors, Editorial staff, and Editorial Board of the Journal of Renal Nutrition (JREN) are excited to bring our readers topics of interest and opportunities to learn the latest science in renal nutrition, dietetics, and metabolism. We will focus on these topics by including emphasis on physical function, strategies for prevention, and community-based nutrition efforts.

Eating Out for Patients With Chronic Kidney Disease
Implementing certain behavioral and dietary interventions can promote improved health outcomes, quality of life, and health behaviors for many chronic diseases. Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is no exception. Self-management through diet provides beneficial results in reducing symptoms and tapers disease progression.1 Those with CKD are recommended to adhere to renal guidelines; however, making changes in one's diet presents as a difficult task. Today's dietary culture in America has made it challenging to maintain healthy eating habits, especially in a restaurant setting. (Source: Journal of Renal Nutrition)

Managing Hyperkalemia: Another Benefit of Exercise in People With Chronic Kidney Disease?
People with chronic kidney disease (CKD) are at increased risk of hyperkalemia, an electrolyte abnormality that can cause serious, sometimes fatal, cardiac arrhythmias. Muscle contraction causes potassium to be released from cells, increasing serum potassium concentrations. However, these effects are transient, and the long-term impact of exercise training on hyperkalemia risk in CKD patients is largely unknown. In this review, we examine the effects of exercise on factors affecting potassium balance in people with CKD, highlighting the potential benefits of regular exercise on hyperkalemia risk in this population.

Haemodialysis (HD) patients suffer from nutritional problems, which include muscle wasting, weakness, and cachexia, and are associated with poor clinical outcomes. The European Working Group for Sarcopenia in Older People (EWGSOP) and Foundations for the National Institute of Health (FNIH) have developed criteria for the assessment of sarcopenia, including the use of non-invasive techniques such as bioelectrical impedance assessment (BIA), anthropometry, and hand grip strength (HGS) dynamometry.

About twice a year I meet up with a handful of friends from my high school days. We fill each other in on our families, work, and vacations since our last get-together. In talking with one friend I was surprised to learn that her brother had recently moved back from out of state. He had been diagnosed with End Stage Kidney Disease and was anxiously awaiting a kidney transplant while living with her. In recounting her brother's story, she admitted that she had no clue about his diet. She suspected the carryout food and frequent dinning out were not the best choices.
