Energy

Adequate energy intake essential to optimise nutritional status.

Pre dialysis/ Conservative Management
High energy requirements (30-35 kcal/kg/IBW)

  • Can have raised metabolic rate

Haemodialysis
High-energy requirements (30-35 kcal/kg/IBW)

  • Catabolic process raises metabolic rate

Peritoneal Dialysis
Moderate energy requirements (25-30/kg/IBW)

  • Account for calories absorbed from dialysis fluid (can be 70-270kcal/day
