2023 AAFP CME Symposium - Optimizing Outcomes in Patients with Hyperkalemia: Exploring the Role of the Family Physician

By: PRLog

This CME Symposium takes place during the 2023 American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) FMX Annual Meeting #AAFPFMX on Thursday, October 26, 2023 from 6:45 PM - 8:15 PM CT at the Hyatt Regency McCormick Place, Chicago, Illinois.

HAZLET, N.J. - Sept. 18, 2023 - PRLog -- In this program, experts will discuss the risk factors for, and risks of hyperkalemia, treatment goals of  acute and chronic hyperkalemia, the importance of RAASi in CKD and HF patients, the potential adverse outcomes in individuals with ESRD undergoing adequate hemodialysis with predialysis hyperkalemia,  and evidence with K+ binders in various patient populations. A multi-specialty faculty, consisting of two nephrologists, a dietician, and a primary care physician, will then discuss cardiorenal challenges faced by family physicians, including dietary recommendations to their patients with hyperkalemia. In addition, the panel will identify key cardiorenal messages for patients taking K+ binders (for hyperkalemia) and sodium-glucose cotransporter 2 (SGLT2) inhibitors which reduce the risk for hyperkalemia and significantly improve cardiorenal outcomes.
