“A significant problem among diabetic patients with kidney disease is a lack of symptoms. Most diabetic patients feel normal, until their kidney condition worsens. In addition, current diagnostic tests can only detect DKD when symptoms appear, and the condition is hard to treat. Around 3,000 patients with diabetes die every year due to kidney-related conditions.
With these problems in mind, a WA-based team of researchers from Proteomics International have developed PromarkerD, an innovative test that can predict DKD, before symptoms start.“
