Type 2 diabetics are predisposed to diabetic nephropathy (DN), a major pathological disorder leading to end-stage renal disease, which is the leading cause of premature death in diabetic patients. Podocytes are highly specialized and terminally differentiated glomerular cells that play a vital role in the development and progression of DN. Previous studies have demonstrated that berberine is clinically effective in alleviating type 2 diabetes. However, the effect of berberine on podocyte… CONTINUE READING
