About this book

Dyslipidemia in chronic kidney disease is a common clinical problem and growing in prevalence. With the recent publication of clinical practice guidelines on the management of lipid related disorders in patients affected by chronic kidney disease, an up-to-date and comprehensive resource of evidence-based literature is needed. Dyslipidemias in Kidney Disease captures the growing body of information on this subject matter. This book presents the latest clinical evidence and management guidance for patients of various demographics and stages of chronic kidney disease. Written for the nephrologist community, as well as cardiologists and general practitioners, this guide will provide practical knowledge and fill a much needed void in the literature.

Reviews

From the book reviews:

“This is a comprehensive book on dyslipidemias in kidney disease. … This is an excellent tool for nephrologists, whether clinical or research oriented. It is also of great interest to internists, cardiologists, endocrinologists, and all healthcare providers who have a particular interest in lipid-related disorders. … It is fully updated and summarizes the rapid advances made in the field of lipid disorders, with a focus on coexisting diseases within nephrology. The tables and graphs are appropriate and add meaningful information.” (Fnu Salahuddin, Doody’s Book Reviews, August, 2014)
