This helpful guide provides a practical overview of the nutritional principles and pathophysiologic concepts specific to patients with renal disease. Physicians, dietitians, nurses and their clients — diabetics, patients with nephrotic syndrome, those undergoing hemodialysis, and others — will all benefit from the nutritional requirements and dietary guidelines found in this text. Now completely revised and updated for the Third Edition, Handbook of Nutrition and the Kidney is even more concise and more useful — important points are bulleted and highlighted for quick reference and numerous tables support and clarify essential material. In-depth discussion is offered for actual dietary therapy of patients with renal disease, including menus and lists of supplements that can be used to enhance compliance. New in this edition: the impact of abnormal lipid metabolism; requirements for trace minerals and vitamins; and methods for assessing the adequacy of nutritional intervention in uremia.

From The Critics
New edition of a pocket-sized handbook that provides a clinical update on the dietary management of the kidney patient. From renal failure to renal transplant, experts in nephrology and clinical nutrition cover the unique nutritional requirements and dietary guidelines for related conditions, integrating scientific foundations and clinical wisdom. The 15 chapters include topics such as nutritional factors in the mortality of dialysis patients, malnutrition, trace elements and vitamins, requirements for the pre-dialysis patient, the use of nutritional therapies to delay the loss of kidney function, dietary guidelines for calcium, phosphorus, trace elements and vitamins, and others. Although the information is intended for the medical profession and much of it is technical in nature, it could also be useful and/or of interest to the patient. Edited by Mitch (Renal division, Emory U. School of Medicine) and Klahr (internal medicine, Washington U. School of Medicine). Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
