Exercise for Chronic Kidney Disease Podcast

This podcast will provide an update on the role of exercise for individuals with chronic kidney disease (CKD). The role of kidneys in health and the development of CKD, diagnosis, epidemiology, and disease consequences will be summarised before a discussion of the effects of the CKD on physical function, fatigue, and quality of life is covered. The role of lifestyle factors, notably exercise in the prevention and management of CKD as well as minimising comorbid disease progression will be presented. Current exercise guidelines for CKD will be discussed. The role of exercise during dialysis will be covered including the particular challenges this poses. 

The recording is of a webinar presented by ESSA on 23 August 2017.
