Abstract

The purpose of these guidelines is to provide dietitians in Australia and New Zealand with a summary of evidence based clinical guidelines related to the dietetic management of adult patients with chronic kidney disease. The patient target group is any adult patient fulfilling the definition and diagnostic criteria of Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD), excluding those with nephrotic syndrome. These guidelines by definition also exclude acute renal failure and transplantation.

The clinical questions were as follows: • At what level of GFR should patients be referred to the dietitian in order to maximise nutritional intervention opportunities? • Which specific measures best reflect nutritional status or change in nutritional status in Chronic Kidney Disease? • What are the goals of nutrition intervention for CKD? • What is (are) the appropriate nutritional intervention(s) to optimise nutritional status in Chronic Kidney Disease and prevent malnutrition? • What is the optimal method of implementation and follow up to ensure nutritional status is maintained or improved?

These guidelines are meant to serve as a general framework for handling patients with particular health problems. It may not always be appropriate to use these guidelines to manage clients because individual circumstances may vary. The independent skill and judgement of the health care provider must always dictate treatment decisions. These guidelines for practice are provided with the express understanding that they do not establish or specify particular standards of care, whether legal, medical or other1.

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
