About this book

Introduction

When the kidney fails its intended mission to manage the body’s waste products, physicians must perform multi-level and simultaneous adjustments to replicate kidney function. The management of the body’s absorption, reabsorption, utilization and excretion of calcium and phosphate requires constant fine tuning. Calcium and Phosphate Metabolism Management in Chronic Renal Diseases provides an overview of the state-of-the-art clinical and basic science aspects of abnormal calcium and phosphate metabolism and its management.

Chen Hsing Hsu is a Professor of Internal Medicine at the University of Michigan Medical Center, Ann Arbor, Michigan.
