Abstract
It is well known that the kidney is important for maintaining glucose homeostasis in vivo. However, the physiological role of the kidney in glucose metabolism is typically underestimated. Recently, a new class of anti-diabetic medications that affect the renal glucose regulatory mechanism was introduced into the market, sparking the interest of many researchers to better understand this mechanism. In this article, I briefly describe the role of the kidney in glucose metabolism and the changes of its function in patients with diabetes mellitus.
Key Words: Kidney, Glucose, Type 2 diabetes mellitus, Sodium glucose cotransporter 2, Gluconeogenesis
