Tight achievement of multiple targets, recommended by the American Diabetes Association (ADA), can delay diabetic nephropathy in Chinese with Type 2 diabetes.
The study, involving 1,290 type 2 diabetic patients with normoalbuminuria, revealed that patients who received intensified treatment and achieved the ADA goals (HbA1c of less than 7 percent, blood pressure of less than 130/80, LDL cholesterol of less than 100 mg/dL, and triglycerides of less than 150 mg/dL) were able to delay the onset of microalbuminuria.
The researchers concluded that this multifactorial intervention should be started in patients with diabetes and normoalbuminuria.”
