Effects of indomethacin on kidney function in Type 1 (insulin-dependent) diabetic patients with nephropathy

Abstract

We investigated whether the glomerular synthesis of prostaglandins modulates the glomerular filtration rate and albumimiria in diabetic nephropathy. The urinary excretion of immunoreactive prostaglandin E2 (253pg/min) was significantly elevated in eight Type 1 (insulin-dependent) diabetic women with nephropathy as compared with nine normoalbuminuric Type 1… (More)
