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.

It is fully updated and summarizes the rapid advances made in the field of lipid disorders, with a focus on coexisting diseases within nephrology.
