People with type 2 diabetes and chronic kidney disease are at three times higher risk of dying from a cardiovascular event. According to the National Kidney Foundation, the two main causes of chronic kidney disease are diabetes and high blood pressure. These two conditions were the primary diagnosis in 75% of kidney failure cases between 2015-2017. Listen to Dr. George Bakris, a nephrologist with expertise in diabetes-related kidney disease, and Dr. Peter McCullough, a cardiologist who is also board certified in internal medicine, discuss how to better screen and manage patients with type 2 diabetes who are at risk for cardiovascular disease and renal disease.
