There has been a rapid development in the late 1990s within the field of the kidney and hypertension in diabetes mellitus. A significant amount of work within the traditional areas has been published, and several new dimensions are being developed, mostly in the experimental setting. These dimensions are discussed in several chapters of this text. It endeavors to cover all aspects of renal involvement in diabetes and is written by colleagues who are themselves active in the many fields of medical research covered in this volume: epidemiology, physiology and pathophysiology, laboratory methodology and renal pathology.
