Main research areas


Clinical studies of diabetic nephropathy and the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system (RAAS) in hypertensive patients with diabetic nephropathy has focused on clarifying pathophysiological mechanisms and effects of RAAS blockade, particularly the effect of blockade of the angiotensin 2 subtype-1 receptor (ARB) and inhibition of aldosterone on the progression of diabetic nephropathy; Insulin pump treatment in prevention of progression of late diabetic complications 

"

Expertises

Diabetes with particular emphasis on late diabetes complications and diabetes technology.

 

Current research

 

Prevention of progression of nephropathy through optimization of glycemic control and reduction of glycemic variability is being investigated in studies of patients with diabetes treated with insulin pump compared to multiple daily injections. Our studies in type 1 diabetes patients with microalbuminuria suggests a renoprotective effect of insulin pump as evaluated by reduced albuminuria.
