Implication for health policy/practice/research/medical education:

The ability to identify diabetic patients at high risk for progressive renal decline should be one of the priorities of nephrology community. Early identification may lead to improved clinical management, quality of life, and a decrease in the already high burden of morbidity. An ideal biomarker should be relatively inexpensive and readily measured either in serum or urine.
