Cardiorenal syndrome (CRS) in people with type 2 diabetes mellitus illustrates the bidirectional link between the heart and the kidneys, with acute or chronic dysfunction of one organ adversely impacting the function of the other. The cardiovascular and renoprotective benefits evidenced with sodium-glucose transporter-2 (SGLT-2) inhibitors make them a potential choice in the management of CRS.
