Abstract: Diabetic nephropathy (DN) is an important long-term complication of diabetes. DN is now the most common cause of end-stage renal disease (ESRD) in many countries [1]. Both the increasing prevalence of type 2 DMand increased acceptance of diabetic patients into renal replacement therapy (RRT) programmes have contributed to this. Indeed, there has been a marked increase in the incidence of renal replacement therapy (RRT) for type 2 DM over time [1]. DN is also a major burden on health care budgets [2] and is associated with a reduction in health-related quality of life [3, 4].Moreover, DN is associated with increased cardiovascular mortality in both type 1 and type 2 diabetic patients [5, 6].
