The second session will review the development of renal secondary hyperparathyroidism and how to correct this condition with the use of phosphorus restriction and calcitriol (activated naturally occurring metabolite 1,25(OH)2-cholecalciferol). The emerging concept for the need to supplement parent vitamin D (cholecalciferol) will be introduced. The benefits of prescribing converting enzyme inhibitor treatment (enalapril, benazepril) to prolong renal function and or quality of life will be detailed. The overlapping benefits of dampening the RAAS system with ACE-inhibition and calcitriol will be introduced. The control of renal secondary hyperparathyroidism, progressive renal inflammation, and renal proteinuria will feature treatment with RAAS inhibition (ACE-inhibitors or ARB) and the activated vitamin D metabolite calcitriol (1,25(OH)2-cholecalciferol). A program of diagnostic testing will be proposed to allow safe and effective treatment of CKD.
