This proposed symposium will provide current information about the clinical significance of both anemia and hyperkalemia in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). Numbers of prevalent CKD patients have increased and will continue to rise; thus, practitioners will be confronted with management of these complex medical problems unique to patients with chronic renal impairment. Data suggests there are gaps in optimally managing both anemia and hyperkalemia. Fortunately, new insights into the pathophysiology of both complications have yielded novel treatment targets that may optimize patient management. This educational program will provide expert insights into emerging therapies for management of anemia and hyperkalemia of CKD. The faculty panel will explore all the latest clinical trial data and discuss how these novel agents compare to other therapies used in clinical practice.
Expected Learning Outcomes:
Following are learning outcomes expected from the audience at the conclusion of this symposium.
  • Emphasis will be placed on these learning objectives and changes in practice. Examine the prevalence of and risk factors for hyperkalemia and its associated prognosis across healthcare settings
  • Appraise the recent shifts in treatment patterns that have occurred in the management of anemia in CKD
  • Describe commonly applied therapies for anemia and hyperkalemia and understand their advantages and disadvantages.
  • Become familiar with novel treatments for hyperkalemia and anemia, and their role in changing therapeutic paradigms optimizing management.
