Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a leading cause of mortality and morbidity that can lead to needing haemodialysis and kidney transplant. Join Professor Hiddo Heerspink, Professor Vlado Perkovic and Dr George Bakris and explore:
- CKD symptoms, stages, and pathophysiology of CKD from renal function to nephropathy
- The diagnosis of CKD, including the signs of kidney disease from early to late CKD stages
- Novel treatments for CKD to help delay disease progression and the need for renal transplantation
