Epigenetics of diabetic nephropathy

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)

Abstract

Diabetes is responsible for a large proportion of chronic kidney disease and end-stage renal disease worldwide. Careful monitoring and balanced control of blood glucose for individuals with type 1 diabetes can delay or prevent the onset of micro- and macro-vascular complications, however hyperglycaemia does not explain all of the risk for these diabetic complications. Genetic risk factors for diabetic nephropathy are being identified through international collaborations. However despite these advances a significant proportion of susceptibility remains unexplained, the so-called ‘missing heritability’.
