Abstract

The results obtained by dialysis in patients affected by diabetic nephropathy improved dramatically in the last years ([1]–[3]). However, many of the extrarenal complications of long-term diabetes, as retinopathy with blindness, neuropathy, ischemic myocardiopathy and peripheral vascular disease, continue to progress during dialysis ([2]–[5]).
