Hyperphosphataemia is a usual accompaniment of end stage renal disease and dialysis, in the absence of dietary phosphate restriction or supplemental phosphate binders. It is associated with renal osteodystrophy, metastatic calcification and increased mortality and morbidity. Despite dietary restriction and dialysis, most patients will require a phosphate-binding agent to treat this condition. However, phosphate control has not significantly improved over the last two decades, mainly because of… CONTINUE READING
