Thomaseth K., Pacini G., Morelli P., Tonolo G., Nosadini R. Importance of glycemic control on the course of glomerular filtration rate in type 2 diabetes with hypertension and microalbuminuria under tight blood pressure control. In: Nutrition Metabolism and Cardiovascular Diseases, vol. 18 pp. 632 - 8. Elsevier, 2008.
BACKGROUND AND AIMS: To evaluate the role of glycemic control on the evolution of glomerular filtration rate (GFR) in type 2 diabetes (T2DM) with mild-moderate hypertension under tight blood pressure control, and to address the current controversy whether diabetic nephropathy worsens, independently of blood pressure, proportionally to HbA1c at any physiological level or only when HbA1c is above a 7.5-8% threshold. METHODS AND RESULTS: T2DM (N=127) during early stage diabetic nephropathy characterized by microalbuminuria were followed during a 2year multicenter study. Individual GFR profiles were accurately obtained by (51)Cr - EDTA bolus injections and analyzed with linear statistical mixed-effects models. GFR at baseline was significantly negatively correlated with age and plasma creatinine concentration (P
