IDF online event: Diabetes and Kidney Disease

23 April 2024

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is one of the most common diabetes-related complications, affecting close to 40% of people living with diabetes. Furthermore, people with CKD are at greater risk of developing cardiovascular disease (CVD), a second high-risk diabetes-related complication. With the prevalence of diabetes on the rise globally, it is crucial to address the link between diabetes and kidney disease to find strategies to reduce its impact. 

To address this issue, the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) will host an online event on 14 May to present the latest findings from the IDF Diabetes Atlas Report, Diabetes and kidney disease, and the iCaReMe registry. Diabetes advocates, healthcare professionals and policymakers will will share their insights on various aspects of diabetes-related kidney disease, and highlight the significance of data collection and analysis in improving clinical care for people with CKD.
