Diabetic Nephropathy

Will aggressive treatment of blood sugar slow progression?

Hyperglycemia could cause albuminuria. Should we find out with certainty that either high FBS and/or high 2 hrs PP sugar be treated aggresively before a clinical diagnosis of DM is made

What is the role of the tubule in early DN?

The primary focus of the pathophysiology of diabetic renal disease has been on the glomerulus. Albuminuria has been shown to be a very sensitive biomarker of proximal tubule injury. Early changes in the proximal tubule may lead to secondary pathology which is typical for diabetic nephropathy. Thus the tubule may represent a therapeutic target for early diabetes.
