Book Description

Developed through the collaboration of leading experts, Management of Diabetic Nephropathy provides background information on diabetes mellitus and nephropathy as well as a description of the genetic basis and factors causing progression of this disease. The book reviews the various therapeutic options at all stages of renal disease from mild to end-stage, and updates existing information on the management of complications and comorbid conditions.

The first section covers general aspects of diabetes and diabetic nephropathy. It describes diabetes mellitus and its epidemiology, the epidemiology of diabetic nephropathy, and factors influencing the progression of diabetic nephropathy. The second section of the book explores treatment options for diabetic nephropathy and its complications, starting with early detection in the diabetic kidney and progressing on to end-stage renal disease.

Renal involvement in diabetes mellitus is a significant cause of morbidity and mortality. The continuous increase in the prevalence of diabetes mellitus worldwide has magnified the cost of treating the complications of this disease. The time is right for a state-of-the-art review of the epidemiology, pathogenesis, and treatment of diabetic nephrology. Management of Diabetic Nephropathy does just that.
