This activity will address how the westernization of diet has affected CKD patients. A brief history of the industrialization of the United States will be reviewed and linked to the changes in farming practices and how these developments have changed both the products as well as the prices for consumers. In turn, what is easily accessible and affordable for this specific patient population has changed drastically and altered the overall American diet. Activity content includes a review of the obesity, which is referred to as the “greatest threat of public health in this century” which has the potential to roll back many advancements medicine has made in recent history, as well as the specific daily dietary guidelines for CKD patients.
