Glycemic control predicts diabetic extrarenal microvascular complications but not renal survival in patients with moderate to severe chronic kidney disease.


BACKGROUND Control of blood pressure (BP) and blood glucose can slow the development of diabetic nephropathy (DN). However, BP control may be of relatively more importance than glycemic control on the progression of DN. OBJECTIVE To determine the effects of glycemic control on renal survival in a predominantly African American diabetic population with… (More)
