 From the reviews:
 “This comprehensive book focuses on
preventive and therapeutic nutrition approaches to kidney disease
through-out the lifespan, perfectly arranged into five sections covering
fundamentals, chronic kidney disease (CKD) stages 1-4, CKD stage 5,
nutritional needs, and nutrition extras including supplements, nutrition
behavior, outcomes research, and resources. Each chapter includes
learning objectives, a concise introduction, well organized, clearly
presented subject matter, and summary. The book also includes 11
practical case studies. This is an excellent addition to The Nutrition
and Health series because it targets chronic kidney disease, a major
public health concern. It is truly a synthesis of state-of-the-art
science, providing information on epidemiology, pathophysiology,
metabolism, and diet therapy for kidney disease. This is an outstanding
resource for healthcare professionals in academia and/or clinical
practice, nutrition and allied health and medical students,
nephrologists and educators. The editors are internationally recognized
leaders who have designed this book to address key concepts of kidney
disease and related interactions with kidney function, diet, obesity,
heart disease, immune disease, renal replacement therapy,
transplantation, aging, supplementation, and diabetes. They have
selected specialized dieticians, professors, and physicians to author
chapters.” (Karen R Kritsch, PhD, RD, University of Wisconsin Hospitals
and Clinics)
 “Perhaps the greatest strength of the work is the
practical nature of the material. A beginner will gain general
knowledge, while a more experienced practitioner will walk away with a
helpful look at practical applications. I felt that the third section
was the strongest and addressed issues not commonly covered in book
format. The information was also current, and a wealth of resources was
offered at the end of each chapter for further study. It is hard to
provide information for both the beginner and the experienced reader,
but the format of this book allows for both. Granted, the experienced
will need to chase the references and dig deeper, but the information is
there for the taking. Another useful feature is the case studies
presented throughout the book. These allow the reader to better
understand practical applications of the material.
I believe that
this work is a necessary addition to the library of any working health
care professional in the field of nutrition and kidney disease. It would
also be a great reference for dietitians, since they are likely to
encounter some of the issues covered within the work. I was intrigued
and will check out the other books in this series.” (Tanya Marr, MS, RD,
LD, Transplant Nutrition Specialist for the Baylor Regional Transplant
Institute at Baylor All Saints Medical Center, Fort Worth,TX)

     Product Description
 The field of kidney disease has evolved over the years to encompass
a broad and sophisticated knowledge base. This book provides a
comprehensive perspective of the emerging science in nutrition in kidney
disease. It is written by a collaborative group of distinguished
dietitians and physicians who have devoted their careers to the care of
patients with kidney disease. At the end of key chapters, case studies
assess knowledge of the subject within the context of didactic
curriculums. Appendices comprise an extensive and carefully selected
list of resources.
