Glomerular hyperfiltration is a candidate marker for diabetic nephropathy in insulin-dependent diabetic patients since it can reflect elevated glomerular capillary pressure, a cause of glomerulosclerosis. We studied the potential contribution of several dietary components to glomerular hyperfiltration during a cross-sectional study of 110 consecutive normotensive, non-proteinuric insulin-dependent patients with respect to glomerular filtration rate (GFR) and food intake. GFR was measured using… CONTINUE READING
