What is Kerendia used for?

Finerenone is used by people with type 2 diabetes and kidney disease to lower the risk of dialysis, death from heart disease, heart attacks, and the need to go to the hospital for heart failure. It works by blocking a chemical (aldosterone) in your body which in turn lowers the amount of sodium and water the body retains.
