Current treatment of diabetic nephropathy is effective; however, substantial gaps in care still remain and new therapies are urgently needed to reduce the global burden of the complication. Desirable properties of an "ideal" new drug should include: primary prevention of microalbuminuria, additive/synergistic anti-proteinuric effect in combination therapy with renin angiotensin system blockers, reduction of chronic kidney disease progression to lower the risk of end-stage renal disease, and cardiovascular protection...

In patients with type 1 and type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM), respiratory function abnormalities have been reported with regard to lung volumes, pulmonary diffusing capacity, control of ventilation, bronchomotor tone, and neuroadrenergic bronchial innervation. Indeed, the decrease in lung volumes and the impairment of diffusing capacity might have important clinical implications. Furthermore, there is an increasing evidence of a link between DM and pulmonary hypertension (PH) related to an involvement of the pulmonary vascular structures...

The prevalence of diabetes in China has increased rapidly from 0.67% in 1980 to 10.4% in 2013, with the aging of the population and westernization of life style. Since its foundation in 1991, the Chinese Diabetes Society (CDS) has been dedicated to improving academic exchange and the academic level of diabetes research in China. From 2003 to 2014, four versions of Chinese diabetes care guidelines have been published. The guidelines have played an important role in standardizing clinical practice and improving the status quo of diabetes prevention and control in China...

Diabetic kidney disease is one of the most serious microvascular complications and among the leading causes of end stage renal disease. Persistently increasing albuminuria has been considered to be central hallmark of nephropathy. However, albuminuria can indicate kidney damage for clinicians, it is not a specific biomarker for prediction of diabetic kidney disease prior to the onset of this devastating complication and in fact all individuals with microalbuminuria do not progress to overt nephropathy. Controlled glycemia is unable to prevent nephropathy in all diabetic individuals indicating the role of other factors in progression of diabetic kidney disease...

Pregnancies complicated by diabetes have largely increased in number over the last 50 years. Pregnancy is characterized by a physiologic increase in insulin resistance which, associated with increased oxidative stress and inflammations, could induce alterations of glucose metabolism and diabetes. If not optimally controlled, these conditions have a negative impact on maternal and foetal outcomes. To date, one can resort only to diet and lifestyle to treat obesity and insulin resistance during pregnancy and insulin remains the only therapeutic option to manage diabetes during pregnancy...
