Diabetes and Kidney Disease: Advances and Controversies

Tuesday  Feb 28th 2017, National Exhibition Centre, Birmingham

Although advances have been made in the management of many diabetes related complications, rates of diabetic nephropathy have not changed despite the implementation of several interventions. Despite NICE guidance and QoF targets, optimal management that improves outcomes still eludes us.

This meeting brings together internationally renowned leaders in the field of diabetes related renal disease to discuss current challenges, future potential areas for intervention, and therapeutic opportunities. We are delighted that Dr Chistoph Wanner will be joining us as a lead investigator from the EMPA-REG study to focus on the renal outcomes from  this and other recent cardiovascular outcome studies.  This meeting will premiere new national guidelines for the management of diabetes in chronic kidney disease (CKD), updates on glycaemic assessment in CKD with anaemia , pancreas–renal transplantation , quality of life and cognitive dysfunction in end stage renal disease in diabetes , and nutritional care in diabetes and advanced renal disease.

We are particularly pleased to invite junior medical and allied health care professionals to attend the meeting free of charge, and encourage submissions of abstracts for poster presentation at the meeting . The leading submissions will be presented orally at a chaired discussion session and the abstracts published.
