Tune into this webinar to investigate the efficacy of lifestyle modifications (exercise and dietary factors) on co-morbidities associated with chronic kidney disease (CKD). CKD is a progressive disorder associated with severe metabolic disturbances that greatly increase the risk for cardiovascular disease (CVD), osteoporosis, muscle wasting, and other disorders. This webinar will provide novel information regarding the effects of lifestyle interventions on clinical outcomes and quality of life (QOL) in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD).

Learning Objectives:

1. Critically evaluate the scientific rationale regarding dietary sodium, phosphorus, potassium, and fluid restrictions in    hemodialysis patients, and why these restrictions may or may not be necessary under different circumstances.

2. Better communicate with dialysis patients and hemodialysis clinic staff members the nuances of these dietary    restrictions.

3. Promote efficacious physical activity programs for hemodialysis patients.
