  • The severity of involvement of particular epiphyses and the nature of the deformity (eg, genu valgum or varum) depends on the relative growth rate, which varies with age (Figure 3).[healio.com]
Kidney Failure
  • Hyperphosphatemia Kidney Failure Drug: calcium acetate Drug: placebo Phase 3 Detailed Description: In patients with impaired kidney function, dietary phosphorus can not be completely excreted, which leads to elevated levels of serum phosphorus.[clinicaltrials.gov]
  • It is most often caused by a decline in the normal excretion of phosphate in urine as a result of kidney failure or impaired function.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]
  • In patients with chronic kidney failure (often patients on dialysis), a special form of vitamin D deficiency takes place. In these patients, 1,25 OH vitamin D level is also low, as the kidneys cannot convert 25 OH vitamin D into 1,25 OH vitamin D.[onlinemedinfo.com]
  • Assistance from a dietician is especially useful in patients with chronic kidney failure and hyperphosphatemia, as many foods are high in phosphorus and therefore implementation of a low phosphorus diet is key.[renalandurologynews.com]

  • Prognosis The prognosis for treating hyperphosphatemia and hypophosphatemia are excellent, though in cases where these problems are due to genetic disease, lifelong hormone treatment may be necessary.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]
  • Prognosis The regular monitoring required to ensure appropriate calcium levels means that the prognosis is challenging for many people. This may improve if synthetic PTH becomes widely available.[patient.info]
  • Depending on the severity of the diet, site of fractures (e.g. thoracic (chest) area has potential for extremely grave prognosis), age of animal, and other problems (e.g. parasites, infection, etc.), the animal is ill enough to die at any point if intervention[opossum.org]
  • With serum phosphorus and calcium levels, it is widely accepted that standard levels be set based on the relationship with life prognosis [ 22, 26, 27 ].[mdpi.com]
