Anjani Bakshi, Dr. Kalyani Singh

Abstract :

 Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a worldwide health problem. Its prevalence in Asian countries is increasing with subsequent socio economic and public health consequences. Since malnutrition is major contributing factor for disease progression and premature mortality, preventive measures are needed. Primarily, interventions should be planned to educate patients for maintaining nutritional status and improving dietary compliance. In the present study, dietary intervention tools are developed for non–dialysed Chronic Kidney Disease patients of age above 18 years. For this purpose, Behaviour Change Communication (BCC) goals are listed and risk factors are identified. Tools Renal Exchange List and Green Light Chart are developed. In combination with diet chart, these tools may add great value in inging compliance and variety in the diets of CKD patients. In addition, these may aid patients adhere to the prescribed dietary amounts.
