The Aging Kidney in Health and Disease will be a reliable source on the management of the elderly with renal disease. There is an ever-increasing proportion of the aging population affected by renal disease and hypertension and physicians are faced with atypical clinical presentations of renal disease in the aged as compared to younger people. This volume will combine the fields of nephrology and geriatrics and present a multidisciplinary approach to the topic.
