Overview

The Textbook of Nephro-Endocrinology is the definitive translational reference in the field of nephro-endocrinology, investigating both the endocrine functions of the kidneys and how the kidney acts as a target for hormones from other organ systems. It offers researchers and clinicians expert, gold-standard analyses of nephro-endocrine research and translation into the treatment of diseases such as anemia, chronic kidney disease (CKD), rickets, osteoporosis, and, hypoparathyroidism.

• Investigates both the endocrine functions of the kidneys and how the kidney acts as a target for hormones from other organ systems.
• Presents a uniquely comprehensive and cross-disciplinary look at all aspects of nephro-endocrine disorders in one reference work.
• Clear translational presentations by the top endocrinologists and nephrologists in each specific hormone or functional/systems field.
