Educational Symposium

Principles of Gout Management in Patients with Kidney Diseases

November 04, 2023 | 12:45 PM - 01:45 PM

Location: Grand Ballroom Salon L, Level 5, Philadelphia Marriott Downtown

Session Description

As one of the most common inflammatory arthropathies worldwide, gout produces substantial morbidity. The management of gout can present specific challenges in patients with kidney diseases. Gout and kidney diseases often coexist, and many medications used for the treatment of gout are either contraindicated or must be used with caution in the setting of kidney diseases. Furthermore, gout severity may be impacted by kidney diseases.

This symposium reviews the pathophysiology of gout and gout flares, explores the management of gout flares and severe gout, and covers specific issues related to the management of gout in patients with kidney diseases.

Support is provided by an educational grant from Horizon Therapeutics USA, Inc.
