What You Need to Know about Diabetes and Diabetic Kidney Disease

Supported by an independent educational grant from AstraZeneca.

Course Description

This program is the first course focused specifically on diabetes and diabetic CKD. It examines all aspects of the epidemic disease and provides a comprehensive update. Experts cover topics such as the background epidemic of diabetes mellitus, the pathophysiology of diabetic CKD, and current approaches to diabetic CKD and hypertension. The program also discusses new drugs in development; the growing use of hypoglycemic agents in diabetic CKD, such as ESRD; and unique dialysis and transplant problems facing patients with ESRD due to diabetes. After the program, attendees will better understand the epidemiology and management of diabetes and diabetic kidney disease.

Course Objective(s)

Upon completion of this program, the participant will be able to: 1) provide a disease overview of diabetic CKD, including the epidemiology, natural history, and disease mechanisms, as a means to understand current therapies; 2) present the current evidence-based therapeutic interventions as they apply to stages of the disease; 3) provide updates on diabetic ESRD and kidney/pancreas transplantation; 4) discuss the growing array of diabetes medications for kidney impairment, and critique the potential risks/benefits; and 5) present in case-study format important concepts for problem management.
