Educational Symposium

Updates on Therapeutic Options for Anemia in Kidney Diseases

November 03, 2022 | 12:45 PM - 01:45 PM

Location: Regency Ballroom T, Hyatt Regency Orlando

Session Description

Anemia is an important and frequent complication of CKD that is often poorly diagnosed and undertreated in patients with early-stage CKD. When left untreated or undertreated, anemia due to CKD is associated with poor clinical outcomes and leads to a substantial burden on patients and healthcare systems.

This symposium provides an update on anemia treatment options for patients with non–dialysis-dependent CKD. The symposium also provides insights on the safety and efficacy of hypoxia-inducible factor–prolyl hydroxylase inhibitors (HIF-PHIs).

Support is provided by an educational grant from GlaxoSmithKline.

Learning Objective(s)

  • Discuss management options to treat anemia in nondialysis CKD
  • Analyze the cardiovascular complications of treating anemia
  • Compare the efficacy of HIF-PHIs with erythropoiesis-stimulating agents

Learning Pathway(s)

  • CKD Non-Dialysis

Moderator
