Anti-obesity pharmacotherapy in adults with chronic kidney disease.

Kidney International 2024 Februrary
Obesity is a leading risk factor for the development and progression of kidney disease and a major barrier to optimal management of patients with chronic kidney disease. While in the past anti-obesity drugs offered only modest weight loss efficacy in exchange for various safety and tolerability risks, a wave of safer, more tolerable, and more effective treatment options is transforming the management of obesity. This review evaluates current and future pharmacologic anti-obesity therapy in adults through a kidney-oriented lens. It also explores the goals of anti-obesity treatment, describes the underlying putative mechanisms of action, and raises important scientific questions that deserve further exploration in people with chronic kidney disease.
