BACKGROUND Plasma adiponectin concentration is inversely associated with renal function. There is little literature on adiponectin levels and regulation by anti-hypertensive medication with an angiotensin II type 1 receptor blocker (ARB), especially in subjects with type 2 diabetes in different stages of chronic kidney disease (CKD). METHODS Eighty subjects with type 2 diabetic nephropathy were randomly divided into two groups: losarten group (n = 41) and amlodipine group (n = 39). Fasting… CONTINUE READING
