Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) is a common and growing condition, affecting about half of the Medicare population and of diabetics. In the United States, the lifetime risk of CKD for 30-year-olds is now greater than half, and the prevalence of CKD is projected to rise significantly over the next 15 years.

Current methods of predicting which CKD patients will progress to renal failure and require dialysis or transplant have low accuracy rates, causing great anxiety and suboptimal care. Without accurate risk prediction, many patients are over-treated, effectively wasting limited resources and negatively impacting outcomes. Conversely, other patients may receive inadequate treatment, restricting options to only the most costly and least desirable interventions.

Join us Tuesday, May 10, for a live webinar with Dr. Navdeep Tangri, developer of the Kidney Failure Risk Equation, which revolutionizes the way CKD patients are managed by leveraging laboratory data to accurately predict the risk of kidney failure in patients with CKD.
