Metabolic risk factors and renal disease.


Accumulating evidence supports that components of the metabolic syndrome coexist with both albuminuria and chronic kidney disease (CKD). The article by Tomaszewski et al. indicates that this interrelation exists in young obese men before overt renal or cardiovascular disease and also suggests that early treatment of hypertension is especially compelling to prevent the evolution of renal hyperfiltration to CKD.
