Fast food is cheap, convenient, and common for the average American; adults consume an average of 11.3% of their daily calories from fast food.1 Fast food has become routine in most American’s lifestyles, including people with end-stage renal disease (ESRD). It is known that most fast foods are high in calories, fat, sugar, and salt because fast-food companies must provide nutritional facts at their stores and online.2 The phosphorus and potassium concentrations in foods are unfortunately not readily available to most patients or practitioners.

Lo scenario attuale Le alterazioni del metabolismo minerale, ed in particolare l’iperfosforemia, sono riconosciute oggi fattori di rischio importanti per l’incremento della morbilità e mortalità dei pazienti affetti da malattia renale cronica, sia durante le fasi iniziali che nelle fasi più avanzate di malattia (1, 2). Il controllo del bilancio fosforico rappresenta pertanto un punto…Continue
A majority of intervention patients attained serum phosphorus levels below 5.5 mg/dL, a small study verifies.
Hypercalcemia in Emergency Medicine: Background, Pathophysiology, Epidemiology Ipercalcemia in acuto
Hypercalcemia is a disorder that most commonly results from malignancy or primary hyperparathyroidism. Other, less common, causes of elevated calcium include increased intake or absorption, granulomatous disease, immobilization, and thiazide diuretic use.
What is phosphorus? Phosphorus is a mineral found in your bones. Along with calcium, phosphorus is needed to build strong healthy bones, as well as, keeping other parts of your body healthy.
Calcium-based binders, however, are associated with greater odds of all-cause mortality versus sevelamer.
Researchers observe a 2.2fold increased risk of cerebral hemorrhage in patients with serum phosphate levels of 6.0 mg/dL or higher.
