Hemodialysis in Type I and Type II Diabetic Patients with Endstage Renal Failure
In the early days of hemodialysis efforts to treat and rehabilitate uremic diabetics were largely unsuccessful  until dialysis procedures and volume control had become more effective. Although diabetics have a poorer outcome than non-diabetics, survival has improved progressively, e.g. in the US adjusted first year mortality decreasing from 46% in 1982 to 30% in 1992 , although long-term survival is still very unsatisfactory, e.g. at 5 years 45% in type I and 10% in type II diabetics according to a recent German multicenter study . Nevertheless it is no longer justified to deny admission to renal replacement therapy to the diabetic patient .
