BACKGROUND AND AIMS To evaluate the role of glycemic control on the evolution of glomerular filtration rate (GFR) in type 2 diabetes (T2DM) with mild-moderate hypertension under tight blood pressure control, and to address the current controversy whether diabetic nephropathy worsens, independently of blood pressure, proportionally to HbA1c at any physiological level or only when HbA1c is above a 7.5-8% threshold. METHODS AND RESULTS T2DM (N=127) during early stage diabetic nephropathy… CONTINUE READING
