Exercise can safely help patients with moderate CKD become fitter and lose weight

In a study of 83 patients with moderate CKD, those who participated in a structured exercise and lifestyle program for 12 months became significantly fitter—with an 11% increase in their maximal aerobic capacity compared with a 1% decrease in patients receiving usual care. Patients in the program also achieved a small but significant amount of weight loss and heart function improved. The CJASN findings suggest that exercise can be safe in patients with kidney disease even if they have various other medical problems. (as in IN THE LOOP)
