Abstract :

Diabetic nephropathy (DN) is a serious complication of type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes. It’s also called diabetic kidney disease. It is one of the most feared diabetic chronic microvascular complications and the major cause of end-stage renal disease (ESRD). The classical presentation of DN is characterized by hyperfiltration and albuminuria in the early phases which is then followed by a progressive renal function decline. Diabetic nephropathy or diabetic kidney disease is a syndrome characterized by the presence of pathological quantities of urine albumin excretion, diabetic glomerular lesions, and loss of glomerular filtration rate (GFR) in diabetics.
