This interplay extends beyond these syndromes and manifests itself in the form of hypertension, metabolic syndrome, and peripheral vascular disease. With the epidemic of obesity, diabetes, and aging of the United States population, physicians will continue to face a growing number of patients with renal and cardiovascular disease. This interprofessional CE program will serve to help foster education and discussion about the intersection of these two pathophysiologic systems.
