  • Overview

    The FIDELITY pooled analysis findings demonstrated benefits in cardiovascular and kidney outcomes when nonsteroidal mineralocorticoid receptor antagonists (MRAs) were added to the mix. Tune in to hear Drs. Pam Taub, Gerasimos Filippatos, and George Bakris discuss the risk factors of chronic kidney disease, the importance of measuring eGFR and UACR, and how finerenone improves outcomes.

  • Learning Objectives

    After participating in this educational activity, participants should be better able to:

    • Assess the benefit-risk profiles of nonsteroidal mineralocorticoid receptor antagonists (MRAs) from recent studies of patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) in type 2 diabetes (T2D)
    • Evaluate the potential impact of the latest clinical trial data in real-world practice for a broad spectrum of patients with CKD in T2D
    • Identify safety considerations for the proper monitoring of nonsteroidal MRA use in patients with CKD in T2D
  • Target Audience

    This activity is designed to meet the educational needs of nephrologists, primary care physicians, cardiologists, endocrinologists, and diabetologists.
