Poor Glycemic Control Is Related To Increased Nitric Oxide Activity Within the Renal Circulation of Patients With Type 2 Diabetes

In line with experimental evidence, we could demonstrate in humans that poor glycemic control is related to higher NO activity and hyperperfusion of the kidney. The renal NO system may thus be a novel therapeutic target for improving renal hemodynamics in patients with diabetes (Diabetes Care)

Kidney function and the risk of cardiovascular disease in patients with type 2 diabetes

Even mildly reduced estimated GFR at baseline (under 75 ml/min per 1.73 m2) and during follow-up (under 90 ml/min per 1.73 m2) increased the risk of incident coronary heart disease and stroke among both African-American and Caucasian type 2 diabetes patients (Kidney International)
