Urinary epidermal growth factor (EGF) excretion is seen as a marker of tubular function, and some studies conclude that EGF excretion can already be reduced early in the development of diabetic renal disease. It is even suggested that EGF could play a role in kidney and glomerular enlargement and hypertrophy in diabetic subjects. We have investigated… CONTINUE READING
