Abstract:
Diabetic Kidney Disease (DKD) is the leading cause of kidney disease world-wide, for which albuminuria is the currently accepted biomarker. Despite the increased use of glucose-lowering medications and renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system (RAAS) inhibitors, prevalence of DKD continues to rise in proportion to the prevalence of diabetes 1 . Development of chronic kidney disease in patients with diabetes is associated with a significant increase in morbidity and mortality as well as health care costs, even before the development of end stage renal failure (ESRF), and its onset can be clinically silent.
