Abstract

The 2020 update to KDOQI Clinical Practice Guidelines for Nutrition in chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a result of the collaboration between the National Kidney Foundation (NKF) and the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (Academy). The target population for this guideline is adults with stages 1 through 5 CKD who are not receiving dialysis, end-stage kidney disease including those on dialysis, and individuals with functional kidney transplant. The updated guideline includes 83 recommendations on important nutrition topics in CKD, including nutrition screening and assessment; medical nutrition therapy; dietary protein and energy intake; micronutrients; electrolytes; nutritional supplementation; and dietary patterns. Both Academy and Grading of Recommendations Assessment, Development and Evaluation (GRADE) approaches were used to assess quality of evidence and rate the recommendation statements. Guideline recommendations were the result of a comprehensive systematic review, clinical expertise, and considerations for individualized care. Copyright © 2021 Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.
