Diabetes is the most common cause of both chronic kidney disease and kidney failure in North America. Rates of both Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes are increasing in children, with important impacts on health in early adulthood; however, we are not yet able to predict who is at risk for CKD or for progression to kidney failure.
This webinar highlights two Can-SOLVE CKD projects, the AdDIT and iCARE studies, that are working to discover and confirm which youth with diabetes are at risk for CKD.
