From the author: Recent National Kidney Foundation Kidney Disease Outcome Quality Initiative Guidelines for cardiovascular disease recommend that patients with chronic kidney disease be considered at highest risk for development of cardiovascular disease and that cardiac risk factor reduction begin with diagnosis of chronic kidney disease. Risk factors for cardiovascular disease in patients with chronic kidney disease include both traditional and nontraditional renal-related cardiac risk factors. The ANNA Nephrology Nursing Standards of Practice and Guidelines for Care can provide the foundation for planning care to patients with CKD and not only slow the progression of CKD but reduce exposure to cardiac risk factors. This article, on the epidemiology of chronic kidney disease and the risk factors and complications that contribute to cardiovascular disease, is the first in a series of three articles on the risk factors and complications related to chronic kidney disease and its impact on cardiovascular disease.

Implementing Treatment Guidelines for Type 2 Diabetes in Primary Care (Postgraduate Medicine)

The task of managing the ever-growing problem of type 2 diabetes falls mainly to primary care physicians. The currently available guidelines from the American Diabetes Association and the American College of Endocrinology/American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists aim to improve glycemic control, thus reducing morbidity and mortality associated with this chronic and progressive disease. However, the guidelines differ markedly in focus and depth. This review provides a clear summary of the guidelines and recommends how they can be implemented at the primary care level, explaining the different treatment options and providing practical advice on how commonly encountered situations should be approached in clinical practice. There is also a troubleshooting section on how to overcome obstacles to optimum therapy, and details on implementation strategies that will encourage the aggressive, stringent, and patient-centered, treat-to-target approach recommended in the guidelines.
