Presenting modules:

A new non-steroidal mineralocorticoid receptor antagonist (MRA), finerenone, is FDA-approved for kidney and heart protection in patients with type 2 diabetes. In this module, we will be introducing the different MRAs that are commercially available and discussing the evidence to support their use in patients with kidney disease. This will include a focus on criteria for use of finerenone in our patients with type 2 diabetes, and the patient-specific considerations of when to use this medication.
