Datamonitor Healthcare CV&Met Disease Analysis: Diabetic Nephropathy
July 29, 2020Diabetic nephropathy (DN) involves structural and functional damage to the kidney's filtering apparatus, the glomeruli, resulting from diabetes. The diagnosis is usually inferred without a biopsy, so in the US the term “diabetic kidney disease” is preferred, referring to a presumptive diagnosis of kidney disease caused by diabetes.
DN may occur in 17–60% of diabetics, depending on the country. It is a leading cause of end-stage renal disease (ESRD) in the developed world, although patients can have a quite variable course, and only a minority progress to ESRD with contemporary treatment. DN also imparts a higher risk for cardiovascular disease (CVD) beyond that for diabetes alone.
