The onset of renal damage in diabetes mellitus may be influenced by several factors which largely result from genetic predisposition, hereditary factors and the early appearance of microalbuminuria and/or systemic hypertension. Most of these factors are also implicated in the progression of nephropathy from microalbuminuria to overt proteinuria and to end-stage renal failure (ESRF). Over the last few years, the role of hyperglycaemia has emerged as critical in mediating the progressive renal… CONTINUE READING
