The definitive guide to the management of comorbidities in kidney disease

Chronic kidney disease and end stage renal disease have begun to climb to such an extent that it costs tens of billions of dollars for treatment each year. Complicating matters for both doctors and patients is the frequent presence of one or more additional diseases that may complicate treatment. Management of Comorbidities in Kidney Disease in the 21st Century provides comprehensive coverage of the problem and management techniques for health care professionals. With a particular emphasis on anemia, bone disease, malnutrition, and inflammation, this seminal text pushes for solutions to a growing problem.
