The ABC of Kidney Disease is a brand new title in the successful ABC series which explains this complicated area thoroughly and clearly, in a practical and user-friendly manner. Providing information on a wide variety of renal diseases, this book ensures non-renal healthcare workers are able to screen, identify, treat and refer renal patients appropriately.


Covering signs, symptoms, treatments and causes of renal disease, this title includes the common issues presenting to GPs, what tests to use, how to interpret results and when to refer a patient to a kidney specialist. The ABC of Kidney Disease is an ideal practical reference for GPs, GP registrars and junior doctors.
