Webinar: Impact of glucose lowering on CKD progression

This webinar will focus on outcome data evaluating CKD progression in the context of glycemic control as well as data from short versus long term studies that evaluates the impact of glycemic control on CKD progression.


Description of the Webinar

Historically glycemic control has not been associated with a significant slowing of CKD progression. Rather it is more closely tied to reduced risk of retinopathy and neuropathy development. More recently, very long term epidemiological studies spanning more than 25-30 years demonstrate a benefit of glycemic control on slowing nephropathy progression. These are seen largely from the DCCT/EDIC studies in Type 1 diabetes. Clearly, while glycemic control is not as substantive as blood pressure it adds benefit over the long term.
