After completing the CME activity, learners should be better able to:

  • Review the mechanistic features of novel mineralocorticoid receptor antagonists and differentiate these therapies from earlier mineralocorticoid receptor antagonists
  • Evaluate CKD risk in patients with T2D and clinical data with novel mineralocorticoid receptor antagonists to manage the risk of renal deterioration
