New SCOPE module on chronic kidney disease and obesity
Renowned author and expert in the field of nephrology, Matthew R. Weir, MD, has authored a new module on the complex relationship between obesity and chronic kidney disease.
This comprehensive course offers an in-depth understanding of the potential pathophysiologic processes that can increase the risk for chronic kidney disease progression, and the management plans that can slow its progression.
The course covers the association between obesity and chronic kidney disease, including the risk for incident chronic kidney disease and the progression of the disease. The module also highlights the importance of recognising that even metabolically healthy obesity is associated with increased risk for chronic kidney disease.
The module offers healthcare professionals a detailed understanding of the many potential pathophysiologic processes that can increase the risk for chronic kidney disease progression. With incremental understanding about the pathophysiology of obesity-related chronic kidney disease, newer therapeutic strategies may provide an important opportunity to slow the progression of the disease.
With this essential resource, healthcare professionals will gain an invaluable insight into managing patients with obesity and chronic kidney disease. The course includes effective management plans, including behavioural, pharmacological, and surgical approaches to slow the progression of the disease. The module is essential for all health professionals treating patients with obesity and chronic kidney disease.
