Renal syndromes in diabetes.

Author information

Department of Medicine, State University of New York, Brooklyn, USA.


Renal disorders attributed to diabetes mellitus are increasingly recognized as the dominant feature of long-term management. Renal failure in diabetic patients is the most commonly recognized cause of irreversible uremia in the United States, Europe, and Japan. Treating hypertension and normalizing hyperglycemia slows the previously thought inexorable progress of renal insufficiency in diabetes. Once end-stage renal disease has developed, either dialytic therapy or a renal transplant affords life extension, often with excellent rehabilitation.
