Q&A With Frank Brosius, MD From the University of Michigan: Treatment for Diabetic Kidney Disease Progressing with More Work to Be Done


Diabetic kidney disease does not have the telltale signs of other conditions which can make it difficult to spot. However, with the right tests patients can get the treatments they need.

With several promising treatments in the pipeline patients with diabetic kidney disease could see help coming within the next decade. Until then there are many of the same options available that doctors have been using for close to 20 years.

Frank C. Brosius, MD, from the University of Michigan discussed the current and future treatment options for the condition during the American Diabetes Association's 75th Annual Scientific Sessions in Boston. Brosius said that treating the condition is important to slow the progression to kidney failure. While dialysis is a short term option Brosius said transplan is the usual end game for patients whose condition reaches that point in treatment.
