A balanced view of calcium and phosphate homeostasis in chronic kidney disease

Journal Article (Journal)

The association of abnormalities of calcium and phosphate homeostasis with adverse clinical outcomes in chronic kidney disease (CKD) has generated interest in developing therapeutic strategies to target mineral metabolism early in the course of CKD. Hill et al. present results from a classic balance study of CKD stage 3-4 patients that challenge existing paradigms and suggest a need to rethink our understanding of calcium and phosphate homeostasis in CKD. © 2013 International Society of Nephrology.
