Kidney is a key organ in maintaining homeostasis in the body. Many internal and external factors, such as genes, autoimmune diseases, ischaemia-reperfusion, drugs, toxins and trauma, may cause kidney injury. If left untreated, it may eventually develop into chronic kidney diseases (CKD) or even end-stage renal diseases (ESKD).Recently, many foods have been found to have kidney-protective effects. These foods are enriched with certain components that have anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and immunomodulatory effects and may prevent the development of CKD in specific conditions.Therefore, many nutritional additives and functional foods have been developed and are widely used in clinical therapy and daily health care. This special issue is open to submissions in this topic, including but not limited to: 1.Food prevention and treatment solutions for special CKD 2.Clinical Nutrition Care 3.Research and development of functional foods 4.Food additives 5.Probiotics and gut microbial metabolism 6.Nephrotoxicity and treatment of specific foods 7.Drug nephrotoxicity and treatment 8.Nutritional treatment options for post-burn CKD
