Diabetes is the most common cause of chronic kidney disease (CKD), potentially leading to renal failure and the need for dialysis or transplantation. This informative webinar will provide insight into the current state of diabetic kidney disease prevalence and recent data on a widespread lack of compliance with accepted clinical management guidelines. The voice of the patient will be explored with current research exploring attitudes and challenges facing clinical care for patients with diabetes and renal impairment and their caregivers as well as concerns they have towards participating in clinical research trials. In addition, state-of-the-art approaches using tools of precision medicine to better understand the causes of renal disease in people with diabetes will be discussed.
