The 900-Pound Gorilla in the Room: Obesity, Diabetes, and the Kidney—The Hanna E. Abboud, MD, Memorial Symposium

November 17, 2016 | 10:30 AM - 12:30 PM

Location: W184

Session Description

The epidemic of obesity is growing, which has significance for the epidemic of CKD. Although obesity is commonly considered a behavioral issue, newer research shows that obesity and appetite have genetic and molecular determinants. This session reviews the association of obesity with CKD, molecular basis of obesity and appetite, and the potential role of bariatric surgery in obesity and diabetic and other kidney diseases.

Session Objectives

Upon completion of this session, the participant will be able to: 1. describe the role of obesity in the development of CKD and progression of diabetic kidney disease; 2. discuss the role of central acting mediators of appetite in obesity; 3. summarize the renal effects of bariatric surgery on albuminuria and kidney function; and 4. describe the role of adipokines and other mediators of obesity.
