Chronic Kidney Disease Patients may Be Benefitted by Regular Counseling

According to a research, individuals suffering from chronic kidney disease can derive benefits through regular counseling on diet and lifestyle.

The research led by dietician Katrina Campbell, Ph.D. from Queensland University Technology studied the diets of 62 pre-dialysis patients ranged between 40-80 years of age, having kidney conditions affected by primary disorders such as high blood pressure and diabetes.

"People who suffer severe chronic kidney disease clearly need support with their diets," Dr. Katrina Campbell said.

Claiming that kidney malfunctions could also lead to absence of appetite leading to malnutrition, she said: "When their kidneys function at less than 30 per cent they often lose their appetites, which can lead to malnutrition and compound their health problems".

"In the study, the patients received individual counseling on nutrition and lifestyle through regular contact, either in a clinic or by telephone,'' Dr Campbell said.
