SGLT2 inhibitors: Slowing of chronic kidney disease progression in type 2 diabetes

We are very pleased to announce that the Napp sponsored webcast ‘SGLT2 Inhibitors: Slowing of chronic kidney disease progression in type 2 diabetes’ is now open for registration.

Diabetic Kidney Disease (DKD) is of increasing importance to clinicians involved in the care and management of people with type 2 diabetes, and early detection is essential to improve outcomes.

This webcast has been developed to examine the latest guidance discussed in a recently published consensus statement.1

Attending will provide insights into:

  • How regular renal reviews and monitoring of ACR and eGFR are essential in slowing progression to end stage kidney disease
  • The renoprotective effects of SGLT2 inhibitors drawing on evidence from recent studies such as CREDENCE
  • The international guidelines on the use of SGLT2 inhibitors and implications for clinical practice


This 45-minute webcast will be broadcast on 28 January 2021 at both 13.00 and 19.00. Each broadcast will be followed by a 15-minute live Q&A session where you can ask your questions to the expert speakers.
