European Renal Nutrition Working Group (ERN)
|European Renal Nutrition (ERN) is an official working group of ERA-EDTA|
The European Renal Nutrition working group aims to conduct research on the impact of lifestyle, diet, nutrient homeostasis and protein-enery wasting (PEW) management on chronic kidney disease (CKD) outcomes. European research on this field is already of high quality, but hampered by reduced funding, small patient cohorts and scientific isolation. We aim to create strong and multinational European collaborations to deepen in our understanding of nutrition and CKD complications.
Why we need a renal nutrition working group at the ERA-EDTA
