Under the auspices of the European Renal Best Practice, a group of European nephrologists, not serving on the Kidney Disease Improving Global Outcomes (KDIGO) working group, but with significant clinical and research interests and expertise in these areas, was invited to examine and critique the Chronic Kidney Disease-Mineral and Bone Disorder KDIGO document published in August 2009. The final form of this paper in Nephrology Dialysis Transplantation, as a commentary, not as a position statement, reflects the fact that we have had no more evidence to review, discuss and debate available to us than was available to the KDIGO working group. However, we have felt that we were able to comment on specific areas where we feel that further clinical guidance would be helpful, thereby going beyond the KDIGO position as reflected in their document. This present paper, we hope, will be of most use to the practising kidney specialist and those allied to the clinical team.
