Learning Objectives:
1) Accurately diagnose and evaluate patients with chronic kidney disease.
2) Appropriately manage renal osteodystrophy in chronic kidney disease.
3) Recognize the physiology of PTH secretion in health and in chronic kidney disease.
4)Identify mechanisms of chronic kidney disease and its implications for developing new therapeutic approaches.
5) Recognize the increasing role that FGF23 plays in identifying patients at risk of renal osteodystropy.
