Prevent Risks by Early interVEntion at Nighttime in Type 1 diabetes for Kidney Disease (PREVENTKD)
Researchers at Northwestern University are recruiting subjects for a trial to prevent the development of kidney disease in people with type I diabetes. The study’s main goal is to see if early treatment with ACE inhibitors (a widely prescribed type of blood pressure medication that has protective effects on the kidney) is beneficial to prevent the kidney complication of diabetes called microalbuminuria (abnormal spilling of protein in the urine).
