About this book


Diabetes and Kidney Disease reviews the most up-to-date research on diabetic nephropathy, the current understanding of its pathophysiology, renal structural alterations and clinical features, and summarizes recent evidence-based clinical treatment modalities for the prevention and management of diabetic kidney disease.  General clinical aspects are covered, as well as an overview to the novel approaches being designed by leading researchers in the field.
