Patients with type 2 diabetes (T2D) and chronic kidney disease (CKD) risk progressing to kidney failure and experiencing severe cardiac adverse events.
Current treatments aim to reduce these risks by controlling both hypertension and hyperglycemia.
Link Inextricably T2D and CKD with cardiovascular disease, and many patients with diabetic kidney disease will also suffer from either hypertension or heart failure.
Patients with diabetic kidney disease are at a higher risk of developing hyperkalemia, and in this course, we explore the most frequent causes.
In addition, hyperkalemia development often leads to discontinuing one or more treatments, leaving patients even more vulnerable to disease progression.
