Practical Considerations in Managing Diabetes in People with Chronic Kidney Disease
Implementation of kidney protective medications in patients with diabetes is challenging. This module highlights the complexities of managing diabetes, including medication access and addressing disparities in care to provide practical guidance for the pharmacist to optimize medication management. This module supplements the previous medication focused modules that more comprehensively review the contemporary management of diabetes.
By the end of this module, learners will be able to:
- Recommend preferred oral anti-diabetic agents based on the benefits and risks in patients with diabetes and CKD
- Describe the disparities that exist with prescribing and access to preferred oral anti-diabetic medications in patients with CKD
- Determine the appropriate insulin agent and regimen for a patient with advanced CKD based on goals of therapy and concomitant therapies
