Diabetic Kidney Disease: New Promise for Patients Fighting a Stubborn Nemesis?


Originally presented on June 26, 2019 by Robert M. Perkins, MD, MPH, and Curtis Triplitt, PharmD, CDE

After a nearly-two decade period of inactivity and failed trials in diabetic kidney disease (DKD), recent clinical trials have suggested that a new approach to this complication of diabetes may reduce kidney risk. This presentation will review important epidemiologic aspects of DKD, its natural history and pathophysiology, and current treatment approaches. Finally, we will discuss recent clinical trial advances and preview ongoing large, Phase 3 trial programs.

Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  1. Identify the major factors which drive kidney disease progression in Type 2 Diabetes
  2. Identify one new class of agents with potential to improve upon the current standard of care for diabetic kidney disease




Making Sense of the CVOT Landscape in Type 2 Diabetes

Wednesday, August 28, 2019 at 1:00 pm EST

Presented by James A. Ruggles, PhD, and Curtis Triplitt, PharmD, CDE

This presentation aims to put the SGLT-2 Inhibitor and GLP-1 Receptor Agonist Cardiovascular Outcomes Trials (CVOT) into context. We will review study designs, patient populations, and outcomes in patients with established cardiovascular (CV) disease and in patients with risk factors.

Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  1. Understand key elements in how CVOTs were designed, including key differences in patient populations and treatment duration.
  2. Understand post-hoc attempts to understand effects in patients with established disease and in patients with risk factors.
  3. Describe key takeaways and how these results are impacting treatment guidelines and future directions of research.
