Abstract

In the early 1980s, patients with diabetic nephropathy (DN) had a doomed prognosis. Severe renal failure developed within five years of the onset of proteinuria.[1] The mortality was 53%, with 59% of deaths attributable to renal failure. There is no doubt that this devastating complication of diabetes has caused immeasurable human suffering and enormous healthcare costs.
