This symposium is designed to review the importance of chronic kidney disease (CKD) risk reduction in  patients with T2D, how to evaluate opportunities to screen for CKD risk in patients with T2D and target reductions in albuminuria, the manageability of hyperkalemia and uniqueness of novel therapy, and key takeaways and practice changes.
