Abstract

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) affects about 10 % of the population worldwide. Millions of people die prematurely from CKD each year. Dietary restrictions can slow the progression of CKD and improve outcomes. In recent years, introduction of new technologies has enabled patients to better manage their own dietary intake and health. Several dietary management software tools are currently available providing personalized nutrition and diet management advice for CKD patients. In this paper, we provide an overview of these software tools and discuss some open issues and possible solutions, in hope of stimulating future research in consumer health informatics for CKD.
