Early intervention in patients with diabetes may slow the progression of kidney disease, and early recognition of renal impairment is critical to achieving optimal patient outcomes. Annual screening for the presence of albuminuria in diabetic patients is necessary to prevent diabetic neuropathy. Selection of the appropriate medication to control blood glucose and blood pressure is also important. In addition, however, patients should be willing to manage themselves to overcome diabetic kidney disease through lifestyle changes such as diet, smoking, and weight management, and restrictions on private therapies.
Key Words: Diabetic nephropathies, Self care
