Making Clinical Sense of SDMA

Guest accessSelf enrollmentSeminar direct enrollment

Gain insight into the value of SDMA for assessing a patient’s degree of renal function, and how subtle elevation of the parameter can reliably predict the early presence of chronic kidney disease and concomitant initiation of secondary hyperparathyroidism.

  • Understand the value of the SDMA biomarker as a measure of a dog or cat’s degree of renal function.
  • Explain how subtle elevation of SDMA can reliably project the early presence of CKD development.
  • Describe how earlier diagnosis of chronic kidney disease allows for earlier recognition and treatment of concomitant secondary hyperparathyroidism.
