Abstract: Introduction: In both developed and developing countries there is a spike in the number of patients with end stage renal disease (ESRD), which in turn greatly expands the need for chronic dialysis and renal transplantation. In the year 2000, approximately 2, 05, 000 and 2, 40, 000 patients with ESRD were maintained on chronic dialysis in Japan and in the United states, respectively, each accounting for roughly 20 and 24% of the estimated world chronic dialysis patients. Although some dialysis patients live longer than 5 to 10 years and are able to work and contribute to the society in which they live, others fare poorly and die within 2 to 3 years. Many times dialysis patients die due to lack of knowledge and practice in their dietary regulations along with other factors. Materials and Methods: Research approach and design: Descriptive research design. Sampling technique: Purposive sampling technique. Samples: Sample consisted of 50 renal failure patients who met the inclusion criteria for the study. Tools: Demographic Proforma and Structured Knowledge questionnaire was used to assess the knowledge regarding renal diet among renal failure patients at Bishop Benziger Hospital, Kollam. Results: The data were analyzed using both descriptive and inferential statistics on the basis of the assumptions of the study. The result showed that the 60% of sample had poor knowledge regarding renal diet and 40% of sample had average knowledge regarding renal diet. An instructional module was prepared by the researcher regarding renal diet and it was given to the participants. Conclusion: An instructional module was prepared by the researcher regarding renal diet and it was given to the participants.
