Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) represents a major issue in public health as it involves almost 10% of population worldwide, especially in those aged over 65.
CKD is also characterized by the involvement of several organs and tissues, especially cardiovascular and muscle skeletal ones, and it needs targeted treatment aimed at related comorbidities (anemia, arterial hypertension, metabolic acidosis, diabetes) to delay the progression of CKD itself.
Based on above connections, CKD represents a major issue in daily clinical face-to-face among various clinicians. Preventing CKD and its complications should be a common target to take whole care of kidney disease’s patients.
The aim of this Special Issue is to provide an updated point of view about clinical, diagnostic and therapeutic approaches for CKD patients with a long-term perspective
