Our research investigates the clinical consequences of chronic kidney disease (CKD) and the effects of exercise training, dialysis modality and parathyroidectomy. We have completed a large randomized controlled exercise training study, RENEXC, in which we are investigating long-term effects of exercise training in patients with CKD 3-5. We are analysing physical function, cardiovascular morbidity, self-reported healthrelated quality of life, body composition and patient compliance to the exercise prescription.

In journal and registry studies (The Swedish Renal Registry) we are investigating the effects of dialysis modality: homehemodialysis compared with institutional hemodialys and peritoneal dialysis, respectively, and assisted peritoneal dialysis compared with institutional hemodialysis on morbidity and mortality. In other registry studies, in cooperation with endocrine surgeon associate professor Martin Almquist, we are investigating the effects of parathyroidectomy on survival and morbidity in dialysis and renal transplant patients.

We hope to further the understanding of the mechanisms responsible for cardiovascular morbidity, mortality and reduced physical function in CKD. We have a multiprofessional and multidisciplinary approach both in the clinic and in our research. Thus enabling us to work at several levels and study epidemiology, treatment and prevention.
