    Does this mean that early CKD patients should on a binder earlier?

    I think more research is needed to determine the benefit vs. any conmplications of early binder use. For example, would calcium-based binders promote earlier calcification? Even in the general population we are beginning to question the ‘overuse’ of calcium supplements and relation to cardiac calcification and heart disease.
