Two Types of Diabetes • Type 1 – onset in youth, destruction of beta cells and a requirement for insulin • Type 2 – onset as adult or young adult, related to insulin resistance. May be treated with lifestyle modification, oral medications, and later may require insulin
Type 1 Diabetes • Insulin-dependent/Juvenile onset • 20 to 30% develop microalbuminuria after 15 years • Amin, R, Widmer, B, Dalton, N & Dunger, DB: Unchanged incidence of Microalbuminuria in Children with Type 1 Diabetes since 1986: A UK based inception cohort. Arch Dis Child:adc.2008.144337, 2009. • Of the ones who develop this less than half progress to diabetic nephropathy • Associated with microvascular disease – retina and kidney. The increased sugar is neurotoxic – hence neuropathy • 2.2 percent will develop ESRD in 20 years and 7.8 percent in 30 years • Finne P, Reunanen A, Stenman S, et al. Incidence of end-stage renal disease in patients with type 1 diabetes. JAMA 2005; 294: 1782-1787.
Type 1 Diabetes (Continued) • The microalbuminuria can regress – and it is not always related to the use of ACE or ARB therapy • Perkins, BA, Ficociello, LH, Silva, KH, Finkelstein, DM, Warram, JH & Krolewski, AS: Regression of Microalbuminuria in Type 1 Diabetes. N Engl J Med, 348:2285-2293, 2003 • The risk of developing kidney failure after 20 to 25 years in patients who have no proteinuria is low • Labile swings in blood sugar because of autonomic insufficiency • Always requires insulin • If diabetic nephropathy develops, the patient will develop insulin resistance – metabolic syndrome due to kidney disease. Atherosclerosis and hypertension are not primary but secondary events
Type 2 Diabetes • Common in Hispanics, Native Americans and Pima Indians • Incidence of ESRD is lower, but the disease is more frequent – thus it is the most common cause of renal failure • United Kingdom Prospective Diabetes Study • UKPDS – large British study, (predominantly Caucasians) • Adler, AI, Stevens, RJ, Manley, SE, Bilous, RW, Cull, CA & Holman, RR: Development and progression of nephropathy in type 2 diabetes: the United Kingdom Prospective Diabetes Study (UKPDS 64). Kidney Int, 63:225-32, 2003. • Incidence of microalbuminuria 25% but incidence of ESRD only 0.8% • Microlbuminuria patients spent an average of 11 years before progressing to overt proteinuria • Only 2.3% progress from macroalbuminuria to ESRD
Type 2 Diabetes (Continued) • Disease progresses slowly over many years and is associated with proteinuria. The urine should show more than just red cells. • In the elderly, it is impossible to clinically distinguish the hypertensive and atherosclerotic effects from the diabetic effects without a kidney biopsy. • Not associated with labile blood sugar swings • Insulin resistance
Incidence of Type 2 Diabetes • Doubled in past 20 years • Framingham Offspring Study • Related to Lifestyle Change and Obesity • BMI Increase confirmed by NHANES Dataset • Source: American Heart Association • Prevalence of Diagnosed and Undiagnosed Diabetes in the United States, All Ages, 2007 • Total: 23.6 million people • 7.8 percent of the population—have diabetes. • Diagnosed: 17.9 million people • Undiagnosed: 5.7 million people • Source: NIDDK
Metabolic Syndrome • Characterized by insulin resistance – 50 to 75 million Americans • High blood pressure • High blood sugars • High levels of triglycerides • Low levels of HDL • Increased waist line • It is associated with • Diabetes, Hypertension, stroke, cardiovascular disease • Dominant Features • Obesity, lack of exercise
Diet Plays a Major Role • The Sugar Fix • High fructose corn syrup • Decreases the ATP in cells – this decreases cell respiration and causes hypoxia in cells • Releases cytokines that impair nitrous oxide synthesis • Releases uric acid which increases blood pressure • Causes leptin resistance (Leptin turns off the appetite) continue to be hungry • Supersized – HFCS is in many soft drinks and other products • Americans eat more sugar, now have an epidemic of obesity, the metabolic syndrome, heart disease and diabetes
Management Objectives • Lifestyle • An aspirin a day • Smoking and Exercise • Weight/cholesterol • Blood Pressure • ACE and ARB • Vitamin D • Diabetes Control
Lifestyle - An aspirin a day - Smoking and Exercise - Weight/cholesterol • Can be a rewarding way to keep diabetes under control. • Requires a lifelong strategy • Diet: Avoid fructose, excess salt, trans fats and excess carbohydrates • Two alcoholic beverages at most/day • 25% incident diabetics are smokers • Potentiates kidney disease • Increases inflammation • Gentle aerobic exercise • Aspirin a day to reduce cardiovascular risk
ACE and ARB Blood Pressure Control
Blood pressure goal in CKD< 130/80 • Any person with abnormal kidneys is at risk for heart disease • Most patients will require two or more medications to control their blood pressure • Lowering the systolic blood pressure to <130 mm Hg is usually associated with a reduction in diastolic blood pressure to <80 mm Hg Adapted from American Journal of Kidney Diseases, Vol 43, No 5, Suppl Suppl 1 (May), 2004: pp S14-S15
Many blood pressures medications may be needed to control severe blood pressure
ACES & ARBS are the two majorclasses of medicationsused to treathigh blood pressure

Diabetes Control • Sulfonylureas • Biguanides • Thiazolidinediones “Glitazones” • Meglitinides • DPP-4 Inhibitors • Incretin Memetics • Insulin
SULFONYUREAS • First category of oral agents for diabetes – now in third generation • Mainly for type 2 diabetes – work on existing beta cells • Increase secretion of insulin by binding to potassium channels and opening calcium channels • Can cause hypoglycemia and weight gain
BIGUANIDES • Metformin used in obese type 2 diabetics • Maximum reduction in HgbA1c after 6 months • Action lasts additional 9 months with thiazolidinedione • With sulfonureas HgbA1C tends to increase • Reduced cardiovascular risks • Pharmacotherapy. 2007 Aug;27(8):1102-10.Loss of glycemic control in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus who werereceiving initial metformin, sulfonylurea, or thiazolidinedione monotherapy.Riedel AA, Heien H, Wogen J, Plauschinat CA.
ROSIGLITAZONE • Controversy regarding risk of causing MI • Odds ratio 1.43 • ADOPT – increased fractures • Associated with macular edema • Stimulates the PPARγ receptor • Not to be used in heart failure • Nissen SE, Wolski K. Effect of Rosiglitazone on the Risk of Myocardial Infarction and Death from Cardiovascular Causes. N Engl J Med. 2007;356(24):2457-2471.
INCRETIN MIMETICS • Exenatide (Byetta) • From the saliva of the gila monster • Incretin – mimetic • Enhances beta cell insulin • Blocks glucagon • Delays gastric emptying • Injection sub cutaneously 30 to 60 minutes before first and last meal – adjunctive therapy • Side effects – Gastrointestinal symptoms • FDA warning – pancreatitis – may be fatal
WHEN TO START INSULIN • Start with oral agents (metformin) and proceed to insulin if goal is not achieved • May be able to manage for up to 6 years • HgbA1C – use a target • In kidney patients and those who may be operating heavy machinery – because of the risk of hypoglycemia – may want to have a higher goal • Mono-duo-triple therapy – disease has advanced
HgbA1C • American Diabetic Association 7.0% • American Society of Clinical Endocrinologist 6.5% • Many local endocrinologist 6.0% • CONTROVERSY: The lower the HgbA1C the lower the risk of microvascular disease, but the higher the risk of hypoglycemia
INSULIN Adapted from Hirsch IB, Edelman SV Practical Management of Type 1 Diabetes, PCI Book,, West Islip Ny (2005)
INSULIN • Glucose homeostasis declines – • Loss of post prandial glycemic control • Decline in control around breakfast • Nocturnal Hyperglycemia • Consider prandial insulin before starting basal insulin • Basal insulin typically started in type 2
Diabetes and the eye • Type 1 • Almost always have retinopathy and neuropathy by the time they develop nephropathy, but many patients with retinopathy do not have nephropathy • Detected clinically by the doctor or opthalmologist • Type 2 • Retinopathy will likely be accompanied by nephropathy • If no retinopathy is present, they may have something other than diabetic nephropathy
