The article discusses a study on the link between low glomerular filtration rate and mortality rate in diabetics with normoalbuminuric renal impairment. Topics covered include the cohorts of patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) examined, the clinical features and hazard ratios for the mortality of T2DM patients, and the conclusion of the study.

    Background In Mexican Americans, the IRS1 G972R polymorphism (rs1801278) has been associated to such a marked reduction in glomerular filtration rate (GFR) (i.e. β = −8.3 mL/min/1.73 m2) to be considered a major determinant of kidney function. Methods This was a cross-sectional study to...

    Background: The prevalence of nondiabetic renal disease (NDRD) among type 2 diabetics varies widely depending on the populations being studied and the selection criteria. Also, for patients found to have NDRD different predicting factors have been identified by different studies. Objectives: To...

    Background: Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is prevalent in individuals with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). Diabetic nephropathy (DN) is also associated with T2DM. However, little is known about the interaction between these conditions in patients with T2DM. Objective: To examine...

    High serum adiponectin has been increased in several conditions of kidney disease. Only sparse and conflicting results have been reported in patients with type 2 diabetes (T2D), a subgroup of individuals who are at high risk for renal dysfunction. The aim of this study was to fill up this gap of...
