Angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibition has shown promising results in diabetic nephropathy, but long-term results on survival are not available. In a cohort of patients receiving antihypertensive treatment predominantly consisting of beta blockers in combination with diuretics, support for an improved survival has been presented. Addition of ACE(More)
Twenty-four-hour ambulatory blood pressure (AMBP) was performed in microalbuminuric (micro.) type 1 diabetic patients, with the aim of comparison with a matched group of normoalbuminuric patients (normo.) and healthy controls. Thirty-four patients without antihypertensive medication were investigated in each group. Urinary albumin excretion (UAE) for micro.(More)
To describe the development in blood pressure (BP) in relation to urinary albumin excretion (UAE) more exactly, 44 initially normoalbuminuric type I diabetic patients and 21 healthy individuals were included in a 3.1-year follow-up study by using ambulatory BP (AMBP) monitoring. Six patients developed microalbuminuria according to accepted criteria(More)
Initial renal hypertrophy in experimental diabetes is prevented by administration of a long-acting somatostatin analogue octreotide (SMS). To investigate the long-term effects of SMS on renal hypertrophy and urinary albumin excretion (UAE), streptozotocin-diabetic and non-diabetic rats were treated with two daily subcutaneous injections of SMS (100(More)
A number of risk factors associated with the development of diabetic nephropathy has been described, such as elevated blood pressure, poor metabolic control, hyperlipidemia, and smoking. Abnormal albuminuria also is associated with progression of renal disease, but has until recently been considered principally a marker of disease activity rather than a(More)
BACKGROUND In nondiabetic subjects pulse pressure (PP) is an independent predictor of cardiovascular disease and microalbuminuria. Reduced circadian blood pressure (BP) variation is a potential risk factor for the development of diabetic complications. We investigated the association between retinopathy, nephropathy, macrovascular disease, PP, and diurnal(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the influence on blood pressure, glucose, and lipid levels of a diet rich in monounsaturated fatty acids with an isocaloric, high-carbohydrate diet in 15 NIDDM subjects. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS A crossover design with diet interventions and wash-out periods of 3 wk was applied. The patients were randomly assigned to a 3-wk(More)
