Obesity, when body weight is a risk to good health, affects 30-40% of those with CKD. Obesity is a strong predictor of both new CKD onset and progression to kidney failure.

Weight loss treatment is a complex intervention, with multiple components contributing to induce a weight loss response in individuals. Best practice weight loss interventions are delivered by a multidisciplinary team (MDT) - including dietitian, physiotherapist or exercise physiologist, pharmacist, psychologist, and physician.We are using an implementation science framework to evaluate the enablers and barriers to implementing best evidence …
