Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) is one of the most common chronic medical conditions worldwide. Dietary modification (also known as dietary self-management) is integral to preventing the progression of CKD and in managing the complications of end stage kidney disease (ESKD). Adherence to the renal diet is challenging, and strategies to improve dietary self-management, especially for ESKD patients, are limited.
