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.
This webinar was held on Friday, July 15th from 9AM - 10AM EST (New York time).
