Abstract
Diabetic nephropathy is a common complication of diabetes mellitus and is the leading cause of chronic kidney disease. Glycemic and blood pressure control constitute the main strategies of diabetic nephropathy prevention and treatment. However, despite current therapies, nephropathy progresses to renal failure and end-stage renal disease in many patients. Therefore, new therapeutic strategies targeting different pathophysiological mechanisms are needed. This review article briefly summarizes the standard therapy for diabetic nephropathy and also describes recent advances in potential renoprotective agents that could be used to prevent the development or progression of diabetic nephropathy.
Key Words: Diabetic nephropathy, Treatment
