Haematuria and Diabetic Nephropathy
The diagnosis of diabetic nephropathy is often straightforward. The patient has had long-standing juvenile-onset insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus, has developed retinopathy and proteinuria, and then has progressed to chronic renal failure. Haematuria has not been regarded as a prominent feature of the disease, and the urinary sediment has been ignored by the majority of authors.
