    Phosphate (Pi) retention is a common problem in patients with chronic kidney disease, particularly in those who have reached end-stage renal disease (ESRD). In addition to causing secondary hyperparathyroidism and renal osteodystrophy, recent evidence suggests that, in ESRD patients, high serum...

    Renal osteodystrophy in diabetic patients on maintenance hemodialysis is characterized by a higher prevalence of low bone turnover and is associated with a relative deficiency of parathyroid hormone (PTH) as compared with non-diabetic hemodialysis patients. The goal of the study was to evaluate...
