This study will investigate the effect of moxonidine in lowering urine albumin excretion and limiting further damage to the kidneys in patients with diabetic nephropathy. Reducing urine albumin excretion in type 2 diabetic patients is an indicator of successful treatment. Previous studies have shown that drugs that work in a similar fashion to moxonidine (intervene with the sympathetic nervous system)have been very effective in reducing the amount of albumin in the urine and are associated with long term renal and cardiovascular protection.

KIDNEY injuries associated with diabetes mellitus and affecting KIDNEY GLOMERULUS; ARTERIOLES; KIDNEY TUBULES; and the interstitium. Clinical signs include persistent PROTEINURIA, from microalbuminuria progressing to ALBUMINURIA of greater than 300 mg/24 h, leading to reduced GLOMERULAR FILTRATION RATE and END-STAGE RENAL DISEASE.
Peripheral, autonomic, and cranial nerve disorders that are associated with DIABETES MELLITUS. These conditions usually result from diabetic microvascular injury involving small blood vessels that supply nerves (VASA NERVORUM). Relatively common conditions which may be associated with diabetic neuropathy include third nerve palsy (see OCULOMOTOR NERVE DISEASES); MONONEUROPATHY; mononeuropathy multiplex; diabetic amyotrophy; a painful POLYNEUROPATHY; autonomic neuropathy; and thoracoabdominal neuropathy.
