Among factors related to disturbed calcium-phosphate metabolism in chronic kidney disease, the following must be mainly considered as potential culprits in the progression of renal dysfunction: hyperphosphatemia, hyperparathyroidism, lack of active vitamin D, and possibly excess of the phosphaturic hormone FGF 23. Early experimental work suggested a parathyroid hormone (PTH)-independent beneficial role of phosphate restriction on progression in rats (animals with physiologic hyperphosphatemia… CONTINUE READING
