About this book


Although diabetic kidney disease is the most prevalent cause of end-stage renal disease and the disease most often leading to chronic renal replacement therapy and kidney transplantation, there has been, in recent years, a steady increase in basic and clinical knowledge of the problem. In The Diabetic Kidney, a stellar group of international researchers and clinicians joins forces to independently survey recent findings, ideas, and hypotheses about the causes and treatment of diabetic nephropathy. Drawing on many years of experience, the authors cover both the basic pathogenic mechanisms of the disease, as well as many of its clinical aspects of identification, management, and new therapeutic approaches. Not always in total agreement, their views reflect the present state of knowledge and its uncertainties, and offer a composite of different authoritative views on the causes of diabetic kidney disease. Highlights include an entire section devoted to novel approaches to studying diabetic nephropathy with the most advanced molecular techniques, and comprehensive descriptions of the most up-to-date views on the diagnosis and treatment of the disease.
State of the art and illuminating, The Diabetic Kidney offers both researchers and practicing clinicians a clear understanding of the progress that has been made regarding the pathogenesis of diabetic nephropathy and of the therapeutic interventions needed to prevent its development or treat it.
