Professor Alice Smith, Alice.smith@leicester.ac.uk Kidney Lifestyle Research Group

We are engaged in a translational pathway, spanning experimental research through to implementation, centred on the key aims of improving/maintaining physical function and enabling/encouraging regular physical activity in Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD).

Overall we hypothesise that our proposed translational pathway will:

  • improve quality of life in CKD
  • improve patient health outcomes in CKD
  • reduce the healthcare and socio-economic cost burden of CKD

via impact on:

  • activities of daily living, self-care and employment
  • engagement in activities that are meaningful and important to the individual (hobbies, leisure activities, social activities)
  • independent living
  • ability to fulfil caring responsibilities for others eg spouse, parents, children
  • metabolic and cardiovascular health
  • cardiovascular events
  • co-morbidities
  • falls
  • deterioration of renal function in those whose CKD is associated with poor metabolic and/or vascular health
  • health and social care usage.
