The Second Edition summarizes key information of practical value to nephrologists, endocrinologists, primary care physicians, family practitioners, internists, house staff, medical students, and other professionals providing health care to patients with kidney disease. Each chapter is written by an established expert in the field with superior writing and teaching skills. Careful editing ensures a consistent depth of coverage and uniform style, as well as a balanced approach to controversial topics. The result is a state-of-the-art approach to clinical disorders of kidney disease and electrolyte metabolism.
