Abstract

Management of Type Two Diabetes with Chronic Kidney Disease

Allie Smith MS-III, Nicole Monk MS-III, Long Wong M.D.

Chronic kidney disease is a complex disease that occurs in over 200 million people worldwide. There are multiple causes, including: chronic hypertension, arteriolosclerosis and diabetes. Diabetic kidney disease occurs in about 40% of all patients with type two diabetes. Due to the insidious nature of renal damage and the high risk of both secondary hypertension and diabetic nephropathy caused by type two diabetes, early intervention and tight glycemic control are crucial to slowing the progression of renal disease. Renal disease in these patients also poses a complicated problem due to the fact that the effects and concentrations of typical drugs use to control type two diabetes, are partially dependent on renal function as are the unique side effects of each drug. Therefore, close monitoring and frequent adjustment of these medications is needed when managing a type two diabetic with chronic kidney disease. In this report, we offer a brief overview of management of patients with type two diabetes that also have chronic kidney disease and present the case of a 71 year old female with type two diabetes and recently diagnosed chronic kidney disease.
