Webinar Description

The National Kidney Foundation’s Kidney Disease Outcomes Quality Initiative (KDOQI) has provided evidence-based guidelines for nutrition in kidney diseases since 1999. The 2020 update to the KDOQI Guidelines provides comprehensive up-to-date information on the care of patients with CKD and primarily focus on six primary areas: nutritional assessment, medical nutrition therapy (MNT), dietary protein and energy intake, nutritional supplementation, micronutrients, and electrolytes.

Join Rachael Majorowicz, RDN, CSR, LD, FNKF for this webinar update that reviews recent literature since the publication of the 2020 KDOQI Nutrition Guidelines. Rachael will also describe how nutrition professionals can apply the guidelines and newer literature into practice and discuss where nutrition professionals can find readily available resources to help CKD patients in their daily practice. Common misconceptions of “the renal diet” will be addressed, as well as how more healthful, balanced recommendations can be provided.
