abstract
"The handbook of Nutrition in Kidney Disease, part of the Oxford Clinical Practice Series, is a comprehensive handbook for nephrologists, physicians, and dieticians as well as medical students. In patients of chronic kidney disease, the management of nutrition is a prime concern, but adequate literature on the practical aspects is not available. This handbook fills the gaps by providing theoretical and practical approaches to handling nutritional requirements of patients of kidney disease. The author addresses a spectrum of kidney diseases and their nutritional management in the context of Western and South Asian diet patterns. She offers dietary choices that slow down the progression of the disease, and provide lucid, scientific answers to 'what not to eat and why'. The book also includes a discussion on the myths associated with kidney diseases and a chapter on counselling kidney patients."--
