We've changed the way you complete courses

In response to user feedback we have simplified the way courses can be completed.

Until now you needed to complete the topics and modules in order, from start to finish. But from today you can complete them in any order you wish.

Just visit any topic that interests you, and when you are ready mark it as completed by clicking the green 'Mark complete' button at the bottom of the page.

Once you have completed all of the topics in a module an assessment will be provided for you.

Complete all the assessments to finish the course.

Thanks, I've got it! X

Delving into the kidney, we see that it’s really the glomerulus where the mechanisms that can reverse diabetic kidney disease play out, and zooming in using electron microscopy we now understand that it’s the podocyte, and the podocyte foot process frequency changes after metabolic surgery. So, we understand the mechanism that improves diabetic kidney disease and we also understand the mechanisms that underlie the metabolic improvements that we see after metabolic surgery.
