Answer

Good evidence suggests that early treatment delays or prevents the onset of diabetic nephropathy or diabetic kidney disease. This has consistently been shown in both type 1 and type 2 diabetes mellitus. [2] (See Treatment and Management).

Regular outpatient follow-up is key in managing diabetic nephropathy successfully. (See Long-term Monitoring.)
