The Pathophysiology of sHPT: Understanding the Calcium-Sensing Receptor Pathway

Program Information

Although we don’t hear much about the calcium-sensing receptor, it plays a pivotal role in the development of secondary hyperparathyroidism.

  • Sponsored by

  • Overview

    The calcium-sensing receptor is the key regulator of parathyroid hormone secretion and has a prime role in the development of secondary hyperparathyroidism (sHPT). To learn more about this pathway’s role in sHPT along with key management strategies, Dr. John Russell speaks with nephrologist Dr. Kevin Griffiths and renal dietitian Anna Chambers.

    This promotional, non-CME program is intended for US Health Care Professionals. Kevin Griffiths, MD, MPH, FASN and Anna Chambers, MS, RD, LDN were paid a fee by Amgen for their participation in the program.
