How to Treat quiz: Diabetic kidney disease

Relevance to General Practice

Diabetes results in considerable morbidity and mortality and acts as a catalyst for renal disease, retinal disease, and cardiovascular disease, with many patients succumbing to cardiovascular complications prior to the development of end-stage kidney disease. 
Diabetic kidney disease remains a commonly encountered and challenging complication to manage. Timely detection and treatment in the early stages of diabetic kidney disease can slow the progression of kidney damage, reduce morbidity and mortality, and decrease the socioeconomic burden of diabetes and its complications. Screening and regular testing for early indicators of renal damage remains a cornerstone of diabetic management, and the GP is commonly faced with the task of opportunistic testing in their at risk patients.
