The Kidney and Hypertension in Diabetes Mellitus
Sixth Edition
by Carl Erik Mogensen

The Kidney and Hypertension in Diabetes Mellitus:

  • Provides complete coverage of all aspects of renal involvement in diabetes
  • Explores measuring microalbumninuria as a technique for early screening of patients
  • Includes contributions from experts in epidemiology, physiology, laboratory methodology, and renal pathology
  • Covers the disorder's epidemiology, pathogenesis, pathophysiology, clinical diagnosis, and evolving strategies of management
The Kidney and Hypertension in Diabetes Mellitus is a comprehensive resource for information on diabetic kidney disease.

The Kidney and Hypertension in Diabetes Mellitus covers all aspects of renal involvement in diabetes and incorporates information from important publications and new trials conducted during the last three years.

The Kidney and Hypertension in Diabetes Mellitus focuses on pressure-induced and metabolic related aberration in relation to genetic abnormalities, and also changes developing in fetal life.

New chapters explore exercise, lipidemia, and retinopathy in diabetic renal disease and new data are presented regarding structural changes in NIDDM-patients and the comparison of diabetic and non-diabetic renal disease.

The Kidney and Hypertension in Diabetes Mellitus covers new guidelines and definitions in type 2 diabetes, management of end-stage renal failure, and demographic trends in the patient population.

Other topics include diabetic nephropathy, glycemic control, and early treatment in normotensive patients with microalbuminuria with ACE-inhibitors.
