This Webinar will focus on evidence that sodium-glucose-linked cotransport inhibitors (SGLT2i) reduces the development of end-stage kidney disease (ESKD), cardiovascular events, including heart failure and cardiac death in diabetic and non-diabetic patients, with and without chronic kidney disease. This webinar is proudly sponsored by AstraZeneca.

Patients with diabetic and non-diabetic chronic kidney disease (CKD) have a high risk of cardiovascular events, reaching end-stage kidney disease (ESKD) and premature death. Blockade of the renin-angiotensin system was shown almost 20 years ago to reduce the risk of ESKD by 16-20%, but until very recently there have been no strategies that have been shown to further reduce the high cardiovascular and renal risk in these patients. Sodium-glucose-linked cotransport inhibitors (SGLT2i) have been recently shown to reduce cardiovascular and renal risk. The trials and the postulated mechanisms of action will be explored in the Webinar. The data is of relevance to all clinicians providing care to patients with CKD
