The public health impact of this phenomenon is enormous, since diabetes is now the leading cause of end-stage renal disease (ESRD) in Western countries. Diabetic nephropathy, defined as persistent clinically detectable proteinuria in association with an elevation in blood pressure and a decline in glomerular filtration rate (GFR), has been reported to occur in 25–40 per cent of people with either type 1 or type 2 diabetes. People with diabetes, especially those with renal involvement, also have an increased cardiovascular morbidity and mortality.
67 These improvements were, however, unrelated to changes in plasma lipid levels and could reflect the so-called ‘pleiotropic effects’ of statins such as reduction in oxidative stress and vascular inflammation. There may be a case for treating all diabetic patients with microalbuminuria with statins, but this needs to be confirmed with clinical outcome data. Smoking cessation Several observational studies have documented an association between smoking and diabetic nephropathy. However, no studies have assessed the renal effects of smoking cessation.
62 In macroalbuminuric patients with type 1 and type 2 diabetes, the addition of an ARB to ACEI therapy has been reported to provide superior renoprotection in terms of reducing albuminuria compared with maximal recommended doses of an ACEI in type 1 and type 2 diabetes. Whether the effects of dual therapy with an ACEI and an ARB will ultimately translate to a reduced incidence of ESRD in patients with diabetes is unknown. 63 Combining an ACEI with a diuretic or a calcium-channel blocker may also produce greater reductions in AER than monotherapy with an ACEI.
