Diabetic Kidney Disease

TGen findings contribute to understanding of diabetic kidney disease

A gene called PVT1 may help reduce the kidneys ability to filter blood, leading to kidney disease, kidney failure and death, according to a study published today by researchers at the Translational Genomics Research Institute (TGen).

The TGen team found PVT1 expression levels increased up to 5-fold in response to hyperglycemia, or high blood… TGen findings contribute to understanding of diabetic kidney disease   



Proteins may warn of diabetic kidney disease risk

A simple blood test might reveal which people with diabetes are most prone to kidney failure, two long-term studies show. An abundance of two compounds better known as culprits in inflammation seems to pinpoint high-risk diabetes patients years before they show outward signs of kidney problems, researchers say.

Both studies linked high levels of… Proteins may warn of diabetic kidney disease risk
