Management of Growth Retardation in Children with Chronic Renal Disease

Part of the International Yearbooks of Nephrology book series (IYNE, volume 2)


Normal growth is the end product of a complex set of cellular, hormonal, and nutritional processes. Disruption of normal growth may result from a wide variety of causes thus, growth velocity represents an exquisitely sensitive barometer of a child’s health and well-being. Slow growth is a consistent and pervasive feature of significant uremia in childhood. As such, the correction of impaired growth is both a goal and a critical measure of the adequacy of any approach to conservative or renal replacement therapy.
