Free sample

The field of renal disease has witnessed a virtual explosion of new knowledge in the past decade. Advances in our understanding of the pathogenesis and treatment of this complex group of disorders have been appearing at a dizzying pace. While several large texts are available which deal with all aspects of renal disease, there is a real need for a compendium of the critical information dealing with the management of these disorders that is so vital to the practising nephrologist. This Third Edition of the Therapy of Renal Diseases and Related Disorders, as was the case with the First and Second Editions, is intended to provide the physician with the clearest, most comprehensive text available on the management of the diverse array of disorders of fluids and electrolytes, of acid-base and mineral metabolism, and of renal structure and function. An international group of authorities, including many who had contributed to the First and Second Editions, have lent their vision and expertise to this endeavor. In order to reflect the many changes of the past six years, original chapters have been revised or completely rewritten, and several new chapters have been added. Thus, Therapy of Renal Diseases and Related Disorders, Third Edition has a scope of coverage unrivalled by any other volume. Analytical aspects of diagnosis blended with practical therapeutic applications make this monumental new edition a standard for the late 1990s, and perhaps early into the next century. It will prove to be a frequently consulted reference that should be on the shelf of every specialist involved with kidney and urological disorders.

Optimal nutrition is essential for maintaining the structural and functional integrity of all the organs and systems in the body. This is especially relevant in disease and dysfunctional states when the functioning of organ systems is compromised. This clinical update handbook aims to discuss and debate the impact of nutrition, describe methods for assessment of nutritional status and recommend the diet modifications helpful in managing various types of kidney diseases and dysfunctions.

The first chapter of this book describes the various components of a healthy diet when there is no kidney disease or dysfunction. The chapter 2, 3, 4, and 5 provide a brief but relevant review of the dietary modifications and restrictions recommended in diabetic nephropathy, hypertensive nephropathy, renal stone disease, and nephrotic syndrome respectively. The two subsequent chapters 6 and 7 speak of the nutritional modifications indicated in management of acute injury of kidney and chronic kidney disease. The 8 and 9 chapters describe the dietary modifications that are compatible with the two types of dialysis, hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis. The final chapter of the book describes the dietary recommendations and restrictions applicable before and after kidney transplantation.

This book will help the readers understand the intricacies of the aspects mentioned above and guide the practitioner to diagnose and manage the nutritional aspect of various kidney diseases with special reference to practical experience in India. The authors have put together the most relevant facts about the disease for an easy comprehension and understanding of primary glomerular diseases by practitioners and students across the specialty.

This translational text offers in-depth reviews of the metabolic and nutritional disorders that are prevalent in patients with renal disease. Chapter topics address the growing epidemic of obesity and metabolic syndrome. Each chapter integrates basic and clinical approaches, from cell biology and genetics to diagnosis, patient management and treatment. Chapters in sections 4-7 include new illustrative case reports, and all chapters emphasize key concepts with chapter-ending summaries. New features also include the latest National Kidney Foundation Clinical Practice Guidelines on Nutrition in Chronic Renal Failure, the most recent scientific discoveries and the latest techniques for assessing nutritional status in renal disease, and literature reviews on patients who receive continuous veno-venous hemofiltration with or without dialysis. Provides a common language for nephrologists, nutritionists, endocrinologists, and other interested physicians to discuss the underlying research and translation of best practices for the nutritional management and prevention of renal diseaseSaves clinicians and researchers time in quickly accessing the very latest details on nutritional practice as opposed to searching through thousands of journal articlesCorrect diagnosis (and therefore correct treatment) of renal, metabolic, and nutritional disorders depends on a strong understanding of the molecular basis for the disease – both nephrologists and nutritionists will benefitNephrologists and nutritionists will gain insight into which treatments, medications, and diets to use based on the history, progression, and genetic make-up of a patient Case Reports will offer an added resource for fellows, nutritionists, and dieticians who need a refresher course
This volume is the first of a biannual series entitled Contemporary Nephrology. The series intends to provide the reader with a broad, authoritative review of the important developments that have occurred during the previous two years in the major areas of both basic and clinical nephrology. We have been fortunate to enlist a distinguished group of scientists, teachers, and clinicians to serve as members of the Editorial Board of this series. We are grateful to them for the outstand ing contributions they have made to this first volume of Contemporary Nephrology. This volume has fifteen chapters. The first four chapters deal with more basic aspects of nephrology: Membrane Transport (Schafer); Renal Physiology (Knox and Spielman); Renal Metabolism (School werth); and Renal Prostaglandins (Dunn). Chapters 5-10 are more pathophysiologically oriented, and each contains an "appropriate mix" of basic and clinical information. This group of chapters includes Acid-Base Physiology and Pathophysiology (Arruda and Kurtzman); Mineral Metabolism in Health and Disease (Agus, Goldfarb, and Was serstein); Hypertension and the Renin-Angiotensin-Aldosterone Axis (Williams and Hollenberg); Immunologically Mediated Renal Disease (Glassock); Acute Renal Failure and Toxic Nephropathy (Anderson and Gross); and the Kidney in Systemic Disease (Martinez-Maldonado). The last five chapters, which are more clinically oriented, include Uremia (Friedman and Lundin); Nutrition in Renal Disease (Mitch); Dialysis (Maher); Renal Transplantation (Strom); and, finally, Drugs and the Kidney (Bennett).
