Clinical Practice Guidelines for Management of Lipids in Adults with Diabetes Mellitus and Nephropathy and/or Chronic Kidney Disease

Cardiovascular disease is a key contributor to excess morbidity and premature mortality in diabetes and chronic kidney disease is an independent and major risk factor for cardiovascular disease. Lipids are a modifiable risk factor and good lipid management offers improved outcomes for diabetic patients with concomitant renal disease. This report provides a detailed rationale in association with the guidelines, as well as recommendations for clinical audit and outstanding questions for further research.
