Abstract

Clinical practice guidelines (CPGs) are a relatively new concept in kidney disease. Since 1997, the National Kidney Foundation has published 13 evidence-based CPGs to help improve outcomes for people in all stages of chronic kidney disease, reduce disparities in care, and reduce the complications associated with kidney disease. This article briefly reviews how the guidelines were developed, and discusses the CPGs that involve the nutritional management of adults with chronic kidney disease.
