Type 2 diabetes is a serious health issue with around one million diagnosed cases, of which half are also affected from renal impairment. This education module explores the pharmacological and non-pharamacological management of type 2 diabetes and its comorbities, with a focus on management options in patients with renal impairment.

Upon completion of this learning module, participants will be able to:

  • Appreciate the increased complexity of managing type 2 diabetes resulting from frequent physical and mental comorbidities
  • Be aware of the impact of renal impairment on people with type 2 diabetes, and understand the implications for treatment, including glucose-lowering therapies
  • Know the dose reduction requirements of DPP-4 inhibitors in people with type 2 diabetes and renal impairment, and the evidence regarding incorrect dosing and patient non-adherence.
