The Kidney Disease: Improving Global Outcomes (KDIGO) 2017 clinical practice guideline update for the diagnosis, evaluation, prevention, and treatment of chronic kidney disease –mineral and bone disorder (CKD-MBD) is intended to assist practitioners caring for adults with CKD and those receiving long-term dialysis. The update includes the revision of 15 recommendations. This synopsis focuses primary on:
- Recommendations for diagnosis and treatment of CKD-MBD that emphasizes decreasing phosphate levels, maintaining calcium levels, and addressing elevated parathyroid hormone levels in adults with CKD state G3a to G5 and those receiving dialysis.
- Key elements include basing treatment or trends in laboratory values rather than in a single abnormal result and being cautious to avoid hypercalcemia when treating secondary hyperparathyroidism.
