Renal Involvement and Diabetic Nephropathy in Diabetic Children

  • David A. Price
Part of the Topics in Renal Medicine book series (TIRM, volume 6)


If it proves possible to prevent nephropathy in those developing diabetes mellitus in childhood, very early therapeutic intervention is probably necessary. A prerequisite for prevention is sound knowledge of the natural history of diabetes-induced renal changes in childhood.
