SGLT2 inhibition in CKD: Discussing the key questions and evidence
During this educational program, the effect of SGLT2i in diabetes patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) is disscussed in three lectures.
This course consists of the following lectures:
- Outcomes of SGLT2i in Diabetic Kidney Disease: Is it all diabetes? - Prof. Rajiv Agarwal, MD - Indianapolis, IN, USA
- Underlying mechanisms of nephroprotective effects with SGLT2i in CKD - Paola Fioretto, MD – Padua, Italy
- The clinical landscape of managing patients with CKD: Where are we now and what can we expect? - Will Herrington, MD – Oxford, UK
After watching three videos on the effect of SGLT2i in diabetes patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD), the learner should be able to:
- Describe standard of care in patients with CKD and T2DM and novel therapeutic options to decrease progression of kidney disease
- Reproduce the design and outcome of the first kidney outcome trial with an SGLT2i
- Discuss potential mechanisms that can explain the nephroprotective effects of SGLT2i
- Recall kidney outcomes of SGLT2i outcome trials
- Describe patient groups that need to be included in future kidney trials
- Rajiv Agarwal, MD, MBBS, FASN is Professor of Medicine at Indiana University School of Medicine at Indianapolis, IN, USA.
- Paola Fioretto, MD, Associate Professor in Medicine at the University of Padova, Italy
- Will Herrington, MD, Honorary Consultant Nephrologist, University of Oxford, United Kingdom
