The type 1 diabetes patients who were still normoalbuminuric and normotensive, after 17 years duration and a second research kidney biopsy, could enter the double blind treatment study of Atacand or Placebo.
The treatment study continues for five years treatment and ends with a third kidney biopsy.
The study hypothesis is that the effect of ARB during 5 years on the histopathology are more pronounced than the effect on histopathology of placebo.
46 patients performed a first kidney biopsy between 1992-1994. After 6 years 29 accepted to perform a second biopsy. During the follow-up 10 patients developed complications i.e. hypertension or microalbuminuria. 7 of the patients got treatment during follow up and 3 started the treatment after the second biopsy. 19 patients with two kidney biopsies were still normoalbuminuric and normotensive. 13 of them entered the double-blind treatment study of Atacand or Placebo. 6 denied to participate in the treatment study.
The treatment study will continue for 5 years and will end with a third kidney biopsy. Also the rest of the patients that have done 2 kidney biopsies will be asked to perform a third biopsy.

The time period before the development of symptomatic diabetes. For example, certain risk factors can be observed in subjects who subsequently develop INSULIN RESISTANCE as in type 2 diabetes (DIABETES MELLITUS, TYPE 2).
A subclass of DIABETES MELLITUS that is not INSULIN-responsive or dependent (NIDDM). It is characterized initially by INSULIN RESISTANCE and HYPERINSULINEMIA; and eventually by GLUCOSE INTOLERANCE; HYPERGLYCEMIA; and overt diabetes. Type II diabetes mellitus is no longer considered a disease exclusively found in adults. Patients seldom develop KETOSIS but often exhibit OBESITY.
A severe type of hyperlipidemia, sometimes familial, that it is characterized by the elevation of both plasma CHYLOMICRONS and TRIGLYCERIDES contained in VERY-LOW-DENSITY LIPOPROTEINS. Type V hyperlipoproteinemia is often associated with DIABETES MELLITUS and is not caused by reduced LIPOPROTEIN LIPASE activity as in HYPERLIPOPROTEINEMIA TYPE I .
Urination of a large volume of urine with an increase in urinary frequency, commonly seen in diabetes (DIABETES MELLITUS; DIABETES INSIPIDUS).
A subtype of DIABETES MELLITUS that is characterized by INSULIN deficiency. It is manifested by the sudden onset of severe HYPERGLYCEMIA, rapid progression to DIABETIC KETOACIDOSIS, and DEATH unless treated with insulin. The disease may occur at any age, but is most common in childhood or adolescence.
Chronic kidney disease (CKD), also known as chronic renal disease, is a progressive loss in renal function over a period of months or years. The symptoms of worsening kidney function are non-specific, and might include feeling generally unwell and experi...
