The Trouble with Type 2 Diabetes

Diabetes is the most common cause of Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) and End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) worldwide (Simit et al 2017) 

Only 21% of people with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (T2DM) have NO CKD ... most (46%) of the remainder have mild CKD (Chaplin 2017) 

The prevalence of Stage 3-5 CKD in T2DM from 12 European countries is projected to rise by approximately 50% between 2012 and 2025 (Kainz 2015)  

CKD affects 25-40% of patients with T2DM (Bakris/Hahr 2016)

CKD accounts for 11% of deaths in T2DM  (Bakris/Hahr 2016) 

Patients with proteinuria have a 40-fold higher relative mortality rate (Bakris/Hahr 2016)

We understand what it is like to be a General Practice Nurse, to have to know a lot about a lot yet not have the time, or luxury, of being able to complete single disease diploma level courses

When we create a new workshop or program of learning we spend a lot of time filtering out the nice to know aspects of a specific disease area  from the must and should knows and then we get creative and set about making the complicated simple ... REALLY simple!

We answer the questions that we know drive you mad (because you tell us) such as:

'How can a person have a normal eGFR yet still have CKD?'

This workshop answers that and many more of the head scratching CKD related questions that you have asked us over the years.
