Diabetes on the Net is intended for healthcare professionals
Diabetic Kidney Disease (DKD) is primarily responsible for increased mortality in Type 2 diabetes.1 However, there have been no new treatments for DKD in nearly two decades.2,3
CREDENCE was the first SGLT2 inhibitor trial to assess renal-specific primary outcomes and it was ended early as efficacy and renal benefit were proved after only 2.6 years.4
Evidence was provided for SGLT2 inhibitors in reducing the risk of dialysis, transplantation, or death due to kidney disease in individuals with type 2 diabetes and protection against acute kidney injury5.
This series of webcasts will explore the rationale for identifying and treating DKD and provide a detailed overview of the CREDENCE trial results.
Each speaker will provide their analysis of SGLT2 inhibitors in relation to the renal effects and use data from the CREDENCE trial to clarify their perspective. The speakers will also be available to provide answers to any questions from the audience in a 20-minute live Q&A session at the end of every video presentation.
By the end of this series of webcasts you should understand the importance of detecting and preventing or slowing the progression of DKD, as well as the practical implications of CREDENCE on the management of DKD in primary care.
Registration allows you to attend all four webcasts in this series.
