Chronic Kidney Disease And Diabetes

Episode 116: Chronic Kidney Disease And Diabetes. Dr. Butt is back to discuss Chronic Kidney Disease and Diabetes, including the connection between the two and why managing diabetes is so important to chronic kidney disease patients. Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is common and can be found in up to 23% of patients with diabetes. Diabetes is also the #1 cause of new causes of Chronic Kidney Disease in America. Traditionally, CKD believed to result from diabetes has been termed “diabetic nephropathy.” Recently, the Diabetes and Chronic Kidney Disease work group of the National Kidney Foundation Kidney Disease Outcomes Quality Initiative (KDOQI) suggested that a diagnosis of CKD presumed to be caused by diabetes should be referred to as “diabetic kidney disease (DKD)” and the term “diabetic nephropathy” should be reserved for kidney disease attributed to diabetes with histopathological injury demonstrated by renal biopsy
