Jean-François Yale, Canada

Professor of Endocrinology

We will review the clinical trials that established the ability of various therapeutic approaches to prevent diabetic kidney disease, propose a practical therapeutic strategy to protect the diabetic kidneys, and provide tools to help the clinician adjust the antihyperglycemic agents to the eGFR.


At the end of this presentation, the participant will be able to :

  • Describe the randomized double-blind clinical trials that showed that the progression of diabetic kidney disease could be delayed
  • Screen for diabetic kidney disease
  • Establish a treatment plan to protect the kidneys in presence of diabetes
  • Adjust the antihyperglycemic therapy to the eGFR
