Result of the study were mean post test score ofknowledge level 22.72 (SD±3.81)was significantly higher than the mean pre test score 14.31 (sd-3.67) and the mean difference were 8.38. Paired‘t’ value 28.28 (table value =2.02) which is significant ant p <0.05 level, forattitude, the mean post test score 74.66 (SD±7.31) was significantly higher than the mean pre test score 65.82 (sd-6.92) and the mean difference was 8.84. Paired “t” value of knowledge and attitude, the finding revealed that the mean value of knowledge is 22.72 with SD (3.81) and the mean value of attitude is 74.66 with SD (7.31) project ‘r’ value of 0.329 (table value=0.273) which shows positively mild correlation. The result reveals that there is a significant association between the knowledge and the demographic variables of food habits, educational qualification and duration of dialysis and significant association between the attitude and the demographic variables of age and educational qualification (table value =3.84, p <0.05).
