Maximizing the Benefit of Renin-Angiotensin Blocking Drugs in Diabetic Renal Disease.

The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government. Read our disclaimer for details. Identifier: NCT00240019

Brief Summary:
The angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor drugs are now standard therapy for patients with diabetic nephropathy. The hypothesis of this study is that adding a diuretic agent (furosemide) will decrease the urine protein, which is a sign of disease, more than an angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor alone.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Diabetic Nephropathy Drug: Addition of furosemide 20 mg oral bid to baseline regimen Not Applicable
