High-protein diets, which are popular for weight loss, contain large quantities of phosphorus. Phosphorus excess and consequent changes in phosphorus regulatory hormones are implicated in vascular calcification and cardiovascular disease. We tested the hypothesis that a moderate increase in dietary...

Deficiency of 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D [1,25(OH)(2)D] and excessive fibroblast growth factor (FGF23) are suggested to be associated with increased mortality in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). Generally, 24-hydroxylation has been considered the first step in the degradation pathway of 1,25(OH)(2)D...
