About this book


Calcium plays an enormous and varied role in living systems now widely appreciated by clinicians.
Calcium in Internal Medicine demonstrates the physiological significance of calcium in clinical medicine and discusses the abnormal calcium metabolism in disorders such as renal failure, hypertension, atherosclerosis and osteoporosis.
Hirotoshi Morii (Editor) linked the clinical use of vitamin D analogues in bone diseases, Yoshiki Nishizawa (Editor) researched the connection between calcium metabolism and atherosclerosis and Shaul G. Massry (Editor) was the first to systematize the importance of excess PTH in chronic renal failure. In addition to these areas, Calcium in Internal Medicine covers basic physiology, pathophysiology, nutritional requirements and the role of calcium in the development and treatment of other various diseases. The importance of calcium and its regulatory systems is brought together in one publication providing a useful reference tool for internists, rheumatologists and endocrinologists.
