Prof. Dr. N.C. Paulescu National Institute of Metabolic Disease, Nutrition and Diabetes 20 years since the foundation of the Nephrology and Dialysis Section, one of the very few in Europe and even the world specialized exclusively in diagnosing and treatment of diabetic chronic kidney disease.
In 1994, patients with diabetic kidney disease in Romania are denied access to hemodialysis therapy and peritoneal dialysis was not practiced in any center in the country. Today, five medical practitioners with double major, Diabetology and Nephrology, are working in the Department of Nephrology and Dialysis dedicated exclusively to patients with diabetes. Here it was also applied for the first time in Romania the second modern method of renal replacement: continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis.
The event marks altogether21 years since the founding of the N.C. Paulescu National Institute of Metabolic Diseases, Nutrition and Diabetes.
The conference is aimed for physicians with the following specialties: diabetes, nutrition and metabolic diseases, endocrinology, ophthalmology, family medicine, nephrology and is credited by the Romanian College of Physicians with 9 points CME.
