Background

Low protein diet (LPD) has become one of the important means to treat chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients. At present, the low protein diet compliance of CKD patients in China is not ideal, the compliance rate is only 48.3% - 54.5%. The dietary compliance of CKD patients is based on the knowledge of diet, and the survey shows that CKD patients and their families have a low level of knowledge of diet of kidney disease. Therefore, in order to improve the low protein diet compliance of ckd3-5 patients and reduce the incidence of malnutrition, we set up a wechat group through the network platform to guide the low protein diet of ckd3-5 patients. The nutrition team regularly issues the low protein diet knowledge, and makes an appointment for the follow-up of patients to the specialized nursing clinic every 1-3 months to provide one-to-one guidance services.To explore the effect of continuous care based on We-Chat platform and Specialist Nursing Outpatient Clinics on the compliance of high-quality low-protein diet in patients with Chronic Kidney Disease ( CKD) stage 3-5.

Methods

46 cases of diagnosed CKD 3-5 patients were randomly divided into a control group (22 cases) and an observation group (24 cases). The control group conducted routine nursing and high-quality low-protein diet nursing guidance, and the observation group implemented a high-quality low-protein diet nursing strategy based on We-Chat platform and Specialist Nursing Outpatient Clinics on a routine basis. Compare the performance and effect of high-quality low-protein diet between the two groups.

Results

In the observation group, there were 10 men and 12 women with an average age of 42.6 ± 2.3 years; in the control group, there were 12 men and 12 women with an average age of 40.2 ± 2.1 years. There was no significant difference between the two groups in height, weight, education level, and basic diseases (P > 0.05). The observation group's preparation of CKD high-quality low-protein diet,three-day diet diary,and daily protein intake were better than the control group (P <0.05).

Conclusion

The continuous nursing strategy based on We-Chat platform and Specialist Nursing Outpatient Clinics can effectively improve the compliance of CKD3-5 patients with high-quality low-protein diet.
