KDIGO – ISN Webinar Series: Management of diabetic patients with CKD

KDIGO Logo transparentThis webinar is part of a Webinar Series organised with KDIGO.

The webinar will discuss the role of the kidney in diabetes complications, help identify the main goals of management in patients with diabetes and CKD and present the current guidelines on how to treat diabetes complications in CKD patients.

Description of the Webinar

Diabetes is often associated with CKD, and for 45% of patients who receive dialysis therapy, diabetes is the primary cause of their kidney failure. It is important to recognize the impact of this combination of diagnoses because the risk of events and death from cardiovascular disease is significantly increased compared to patients without the combination. Management of diabetes includes many areas that may be influenced by the severity of a patient’s kidney dysfunction, which will be discussed in this presentation, along with goals and recommendations on how to achieve them.
