The objective of this study was to investigate whether reduction in hypertriglyceridaemia is associated with a slower rate of progression of microalbuminuria in patients with non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM). Fifteen normotensive NIDDM patients with hypertriglyceridaemia (> 2.5 mmol L-1) and microalbuminuria were randomly selected to receive either placebo (eight patients) or gemfibrozil 600 mg b.i.d. (seven patients). Progression of microalbuminuria was assessed during a 12… CONTINUE READING
