Advances in Research Conference—Metabolic Phenotyping: From Mouse to Man

Course Description

Diabetes is the most common cause of kidney failure, accounting for approximately 50% of new cases (United States Renal Data System). Even when blood glucose is controlled, diabetes can lead to CKD and kidney failure. The relationship between the two conditions is particularly significant when one considers that kidney diseases and other complications of diabetes cause the shorter life expectancy of patients with diabetes.

A natural corollary to the fact that diabetes can lead to kidney diseases is that many of the patients that nephrologists treat have diabetes. It is essential, for this reason, that nephrologists that treat and scientists that research kidney diseases be well versed in the development of diabetes and the metabolic dysregulation that occurs with it. This program provides a systems approach to better understanding diabetes and metabolic diseases. An emphasis is placed on the pathogenesis of metabolic diseases, state-of-the-art tools to study metabolism, impact of diabetes on renal function, and new therapeutic advancements in treating metabolic diseases.

Course Objective(s)

Upon completion of this program, participants will be able to: 1. describe the pathogenesis of type 1 and type 2 diabetes; 2. discuss emerging techniques for increasing insulin-producing cells; 3. identify approaches to characterize glucose intolerance, insulin insensitivity, and diabetes; 4. explain the central role of adipose tissue in insulin resistance; 5. treat CKD in patients with diabetes; and 6. discuss current and potential treatment modalities for patients with diabetes.

ASN designates this live activity for a maximum of 14.0 AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM.

Program is subject to change.
