This reference work provides comprehensive information about diabetic nephropathy. Chapters in the book introduce the reader to the link between diabetes, obesity and chronic kidney disease (CKD) and delve into many topics relevant to treating kidney disease in diabetic patients.

These topics include CKD epidemiology, diagnosis, treatment considerations for the elderly patient, post-transplant diabetes, pathophysiology, biomarkers and much more. Special topics such as the incidence of cardiovascular disease in diabetic CKD, nutrition for obese CKD patients and the clinical use of biomarkers for evaluating cases are also included.

The broad spectrum coverage of informative topics about diabetic kidney disease makes this an essential reference for medical students and clinical residents/healthcare professionals in nephrology, endocrinology, geriatrics, internal medicine, and general surgery. Researchers interested in the clinical biochemistry of diabetes and associated disorders will also benefit from the information presented.
