Special Issue Information
Exercise has been reported to improve physical fitness and psychological health in chronic kidney disease (CKD) and dialysis patients. CKD patients are deconditioned with muscle wasting and altered nutritional status and dialysis leads to metabolic changes such as hypovolemia, electrolyte imbalance, and systemic inflammation.
Exercise has many advantages and can ameliorate a sustained decline in functional status. However, the mechanisms underlying its benefits are unknown. This Special Issue is dedicated to the investigation of biological effects and metabolic changes related to exercise in CKD patients. The topics that will be covered include, but are not limited to, the search for metabolites of plasma or breath samples, neurophysiologic or neuromuscular studies, functional studies related to posture or balance, or tools for evaluating mental well-being. Researchers can implement an exercise training program or measure physical activity using a smart watch or cell phone. Articles using animal models or dealing with other challenging issues are also welcomed.
