Chronic kidney disease is now a global problem. When the kidney is not able to perform most of its function, transplantation or dialysis is required. The most common renal treatment today is hemodialysis. The use of modern technology in dialysis has made malnutrition less prevalent in undergoing haemodialysis. However, there are many factors that lead to malnutrition even with modern procedures of haemodialysis treatment.
Scholarly peer review is the process of subjecting an author's scholarly work, research, or ideas to the scrutiny of others who are experts in the same field, before a paper describing this work is published in a journal. The work may be accepted, considered acceptable with revisions, or rejected. Peer review requires a community of experts in a given (narrowly defined) field, who are qualified and able to perform reasonably impartial review.
