Chronic kidney disease and CVD risk

Chronic kidney disease and CVD risk

Session Date:

Workshop: 9.00am - 12.00pm

Morning tea is provided.

Chronic kidney disease impacts 1 in 11 New Zealanders, yet fewer than half of them are aware of their condition. By 2035, CKD will be the 5th leading cause of death globally.

CKD is the strongest risk factor for cardiovascular disease. The key factors contributing to this increased risk are proteinuria and hypertension.

The linkage between CKD, hypertension, and proteinuria and cardiovascular risk will be covered in detail – this includes diabetic and non-diabetic kidney disease. There are also significant ethnic disparities and inequities related to the diagnosis and management of CKD and its associated risks.

Optimising early detection, along with instituting effective and appropriate management, which includes education of the individual and whānau as well as medications, is essential for reducing this risk.
