Nutritional Considerations In Peritoneal Dialysis


Background

In this webinar, Drs Joshi and Shah share their expertise in peritoneal dialysis (PD) and nutrition. They will start by providing an overview of PD and highlight the key differences between PD and hemodialysis (HD). They will provide an overview of nutritional concepts—including macronutrients such as protein, and electrolytes such as sodium, potassium, and phosphorus—in PD, and provide dietary recommendations for patients receiving PD using evidence-based research.

Did You Know?

  • There were more than 130,000 individuals newly diagnosed with end stage kidney disease (ESKD) in the United States in 2020, of which 12.7% received peritoneal dialysis (PD)1
  • It is estimated that 30-50% of patients on PD experience malnutrition, which is comparable to the prevalence of malnutrition seen in patients receiving HD2
  • Macronutrient and electrolyte considerations are important principles for patients receiving PD
Why Attend This Webinar?
  • It is important that clinicians have a better understanding of sodium, potassium, phosphorus, acid/base balance, and protein recommendations for patients receiving PD to help improve patient outcomes

What You Will Learn

  In this webinar, Drs Joshi and Shah will:
  • Review the key differences between peritoneal dialysis (PD) and hemodialysis (HD)
  • Discuss the relationship between PD and dietary macronutrients and electrolytes
  • Discuss nutritional recommendations and considerations for patients receiving PD
