Tsalamandris C, Allen TJ, Gilbert RE, Sinha A, Panagiotopoulos S, Cooper ME, Jerums G. Progressive decline in renal function in diabetic patients with and without albuminuria. Diabetes 1994; 43: 649–655. 9. Caramori ML, Fioretto P, Mauer M. Low glomerular filtration rate in normoalbuminuric type 1 diabetic patients: an indicator of more advanced glomerular lesions.

The increase in GFR seen with hyperfiltration starts at the stage of normoalbuminuria but may continue for several years into the microalbuminuric phase. There is some evidence, especially in people with type 1 diabetes, that hyperfiltration predisposes to the development of microalbuminuria and a subsequent greater decline in GFR. The second stage consists of a ‘silent phase’ associated with normal urinary albumin excretion or intermittent episodes of microalbuminuria. Although the kidneys of patients with diabetes appear not to have any functional abnormalities at this stage, it is well recognized that structural changes, especially basement membrane thickening and mesangial expansion, have usually already occurred.

This suggests that normotensive subjects with type 2 diabetes and microalbuminuria should also possibly be treated with agents that interrupt the RAS. 71 For subjects with type 2 diabetes, hypertension and macroalbuminuria, the Irbesartan Diabetic Nephropathy Trial (IDNT)58 demonstrated that, compared with amlodipine treatment, irbesartan produced a 23 per cent relative risk reduction in the primary composite end-point of a doubling of creatinine concentration, development of end-stage renal disease and death from any cause ( p < 0:006).
