Diabetic Digest - Wednesday, March 28, 2007
News, updates and help from and for the diabetic community.


My Grandma has become very interested in her health since 
she started showing the onset of adult diabetes. She's 
eating right, checking her blood-sugar regularly and she's 
also started talking long walks. It's quite a change of 
pace for her, but she has embraced it without hesitation. 

She's always had a strong will, so now with a healthier 
lifestyle she will be better both mentally and physically. 

I urge you to have those family members that show signs of 
diabetes to see their doctor and take steps to take control 
of their health... much like my Grandma.

Urine Test May Predict Diabetic Kidney Disease

NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Looking at various proteins in
urine may help doctors predict the development of diabetic
nephropathy in type 2 diabetes patients well before they
develop the condition, according to a report in the March
Diabetes Care.

"We have identified a set of urine proteins almost 10 years
before the onset of diabetic nephropathy that identify
those who will go on to get diabetic nephropathy, the most
common cause of renal failure in the U.S. and the world,"
Dr. Ravi Thadhani, from Massachusetts General Hospital and
Harvard Medical School in Boston, told Reuters Health.
Diabetic nephropathy is a serious complication of diabetes
in which the kidneys lose their ability to function over

Thadhani and colleagues compared urinary protein profiles
among 62 Pima Indians with type 2 diabetes and normal
kidney function who were followed for 10 years for the
development of diabetic kidney disease.

The authors identified a protein "signature" that proved
highly predictive of the development of diabetic

"While these findings require a significant amount of work
to identify and test the robustness of these markers, they
offer the potential for clinicians one day to be able to
tell whether a diabetic patient will get renal failure well
before the development of this devastating condition, and,
hence, offer hope for early intervention to prevent its
onset," Thadhani said.

"First we need to confirm the identification of the
proteins we uncovered, then we need to test this profile
in other populations with type 2 diabetes to determine
if the same predictive potential remains," Thadhani
explained. "Then we will carry out prospective studies
in larger populations."
