Abstract

The outlook used to be grim: Dipstick-positive proteinuria usually meant that renal failure was inevitable. But now the diagnosis can be made early with the triad of increased kidney size, elevated GFR, and microalbuminuria. Moreover, management that emphasizes strict glycemic control, control of elevated blood pressure, and ACE inhibition can prevent or retard the process.
