Diabetic Chronic Kidney Disease

Diabetic Kidney Disease Research Study

If you have been diagnosed with Diabetic Kidney Disease (DKD) you may qualify for a clinical research study.

  • Diabetic kidney disease (DKD), or diabetic neuropathy, develops in approximately 40% of patients with diabetes and is the leading cause of Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) and End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) worldwide.
  • Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) is a progressive condition in which the kidneys lose their ability to filter waste and excess fluids from the blood.
  • This can lead to a buildup of toxins in the body and can ultimately result in ESRD if left untreated.
  • CKD is often a silent disease, meaning that it can progress without any noticeable symptoms in the early.

About the Clinical Research Study

  • Study participants who qualify will receive at NO COST:
    Outpatient study-related care that includes an MRI or CT of the kidney.
