Adapt or Perish: Renal Metabolism in AKI and CKD

November 09, 2019 | 02:00 PM - 04:00 PM

Location: 207, Walter E. Washington Convention Center

Session Description

Interest in renal metabolism has been long-standing; however, only limited studies have explored cellular metabolism in pathophysiological conditions. There has been a resurgence of interest in renal metabolism. Several recent publications have highlighted metabolic alterations in various forms of CKD and AKI. Alterations in glucose and fatty acid metabolism as early events in the course of kidney injury place metabolic reprogramming central to the pathophysiology of CKD.

Learning Objective(s)

  • Describe an overview of renal metabolism
  • Explain the role of altered tubular metabolism in CKD
  • Discuss metabolic reprogramming in injured kidney

Learning Pathway(s)

  • Acute Kidney Injury
  • Chronic Kidney Disease
