Nephrologists and other medical specialists from the US, Australia, Europe, Canada, and China offer a 31-chapter handbook on chronic kidney disease management, to increase the survivability of patients by mitigating cardiovascular risk and to slow the rate of chronic kidney disease progression. They address topics like the assessment of kidney function, screening and management, sodium and potassium intake, diabetes, hypertension, heart failure, anemia, chronic kidney disease in children and older adults, pregnancy, kidney transplantation, and dialysis. This edition has a new chapter on the risk of chronic kidney disease after acute kidney injury, a new two-color design, and new, streamlined content. It has fewer chapters, excluding discussion of several disease-specific causes of chronic kidney disease and avant-garde pathogenetic mechanisms. Online access to an ebook is included.
