World Kidney Day - 11 March 2021

Kidney Health for Everyone Everywhere – 
Living Well with Kidney Disease

To support the World Kidney Day,the Education Committee of ISRNM has selected these articles for you to enjoy this month!

In this month, our Education Committee has selected the following articles for our monthly Article Bites:

  • Medical nutrition therapy is safe and efficacious for the treatment of hyperphosphatemia in individuals undergoing hemodialysis

  • Baseline Frailty Linked With Rapid Kidney Function Decline

  • In mice, a long-term high protein diet increased intestinal permeability, altered the gut microbiota, promoted kidney injury, and increased systemic inflammation

  • Not all carbohydrates are the same- does this finding in the general population have relevance to individuals with chronic kidney disease?

  • Study suggests that higher physical activity on both dialysis and non-dialysis days is associated with lower risks of mortality.

  • Dedicated exercise staff may improve adherence to intradialytic exercise programs.

The Patient Resources Committee has selected the following infographics from Zarina Ebrahim and her group from South Africa to share with our Members and Network on this year World Kidney Day !  We hope this will be useful reference for your kidney patients’ care.
