Identifying Kidney Disease Earlier for Optimal Care during the Patient Visit
Kidney disease can be challenging at times to diagnose. SDMA is a kidney test that helps to diagnose kidney disease early and is less impacted by nonrenal conditions. Learn how the Catalyst SDMA® Test will help practitioners diagnose kidney disease during the patient visit and how this can positively impact clinical outcomes.
Emphasize that traditional diagnostics can miss kidney disease in well and sick patients.
Review the studies showing that SDMA increases earlier than creatinine in pets with kidney disease and that SDMA is not impacted by lean muscle mass.
Introduce the Catalyst SDMA Test and provide data supporting its accuracy.
Outline what next steps should be taken when kidney disease is suspected.
Review the International Renal Interest Society (IRIS) CKD guidelines.
Discuss when it is important to know a pet has kidney disease during the patient visit and how this can positively impact clinical outcomes.
