Plant-based Diets in Kidney Disease: Nephrology Professionals' Perspective

Plant-based diets can delay the progression of chronic kidney disease (CKD) and help manage complications and co-morbid conditions such as hypertension, acidosis, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease. However, it is unclear how often plant-based diets are recommended to patients with kidney disease. The objective of this study was to understand nephrology professionals’ familiarity, perception, and recommendation of plant-based diets to people with kidney disease.
