(Partially modified figure extracted from Kamijo-Ikemori, A. et al.,
Diabetes Care. 34(3), 2011. )


140 diabetic nephropathy patients were divided into 4 groups based on the degree of albuminuria or renal function.


Urinary L-FABP level of diabetic nephropathy patients is significantly high comparing to healthy person and increases according to the degree of disease progression. These results show that urinary L-FABP is useful for early diagnosis of diabetic nephropathy.
