Recent advances in understanding the pain associated with diabetic neuropathy are likely to provide significant mechanistic insights and offer better therapies. In clinical research, new tools for measuring neuropathic pain and validation of histologic and other biomarkers will provide the found...
Contrast-induced nephropathy (CIN) continues to be a significant complication of the increasing use of iodinated contrast media. There have been few new insights into pathogenesis; despite multiple strategies aimed at prophylaxis, very few have proven efficacious. This article reviews our curren...
Preventing foot complications in high-risk patients with diabetes is often overlooked. Assessing risk factors and providing standard preventative care is low tech and relatively inexpensive. The objective of this article is to discuss standard screening and prevention practices and using tempera...
Chronic kidney disease (CKD) creates one of the highest-risk atherosclerotic states that can occur in human beings. The use of 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl coenzyme A reductase inhibitors (statins) has gained widespread acceptance in the general population for the purposes of lowering low-density ...
The prevalence of diabetes is increasing globally, particularly in the developing world. The diabetic foot is one of the most devastating chronic complications of diabetes. The Step-by-Step project was initiated in India, with participation from neighboring countries and Tanzania, to improve dia...
Length-dependent polyneuropathy has long been recognized as a frequent complication of diabetes. A decade of observational and epidemiologic studies support the concept that intermittent hyperglycemia or insulin resistance associated with prediabetes may be sufficient to damage distal nerves. Fe...
Although diabetic nephropathy occurs in only a minority of patients with diabetes, it is the major cause of end-stage renal disease in the United States. Hyperglycemia and hypertension are important factors predisposing patients to diabetic nephropathy, but accumulating evidence points to critic...
