About this book

This book provides an overview of the most up-to-date research on diabetic nephropathy and the current understanding of its pathogenesis, clinical features and socio-economic developments. Written by leading experts in the field, it provides a comprehensive synthesis of clinical and pathophysiological aspects from a mechanism-based point of view, and reviews evidence-based treatment modalities for the prevention and management of diabetic nephropathy. In addition, closely related areas such as diabesity, diabetic eye disease and macrovascular involvement in diabetes are addressed.

Diabetic Nephropathy will be of interest for nephrologists, diabetologists, internists, transplant physicians, public health professionals, basic scientists, geneticists, epidemiologists, pathologists, and molecular and cell biologists working in the field of diabetes and its complications.

“This book will be suitable for basic researchers, practicing nephrologists/diabetologists/internists, fellows, residents, medical students, and public health workers. … this is an excellent source of answers to a great many questions that arise while dealing with diabetes and its numerous effects. It fills a big gap and comes to the rescue at a time of need.” (Amita Maibam, Doody's Book Reviews, May 31, 2019)
