Abstract
Diabetes mellitus (DM) is a worldwide public issue that has increased the risks for cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. It is the most common cause of chronic kidney diseases, which necessitates renal replacement therapy. Diabetic nephropathy is one of the long-term complications of DM. Renal replacement therapy has reduced the acute complications of renal dysfunction and prolonged patient survival. However, quality of life should be considered from the patient’s viewpoint. Although new treatments have been developed via experimental studies, many trials failed to show beneficial effects in clinical practice in terms of long-term complications. Since there are many limitations to large clinical studies, we hope that improved approaches for individual patients will lead to new methods to increase the effectiveness of agents though big-data analysis in the future.
