Course Description

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is one of the most commonly occurring non-communicable diseases in India with a prevalence rate of 3-4%. CKD is associated with significant morbidity, mortality, and economic burden in India. Management of the nutritional aspects of CKD is associated with numerous challenges. Malnutrition is a common problem in patients with CKD, especially in those undergoing maintenance dialysis, and reported prevalence rates of 18 – 75%. Indian studies have reported that the prevalence of protein-energy wasting (PEW) in CKD patients is about 37-41%. Protein-energy wasting is one of the strongest risk factors for adverse outcomes and death in patients with CKD.

The Certificate Course in Renal Nutrition will provide comprehensive coverage to nutritional challenges seen in kidney diseases and their management. You will learn about nutritional screening and assessment in CKD, methods to improve nutritional status, oral nutritional consideration, need for oral nutritional supplements, enteral feeding, Parenteral nutrition, and management of other issues in renal diseases. Apart from reading materials, there will be lecture sessions by nutrition experts handling patients with renal disease.
