About this book

Introduction

This book provides the essential understanding needed for the assessment of patients with kidney disease. The chapters follow the sequence taken during a clinic consultation and when clerking a patient. At each stage, the principles and concepts underlying aspects of renal medicine that may seem difficult are clearly explained.

Understanding Kidney Diseases includes numerous case studies and charts based upon patients’ data to help students, residents and fellows develop their knowledge and skill in managing patients.
