Abstract: To examine the impact of a diabetes renal clinic (DRC) on renal functional and metabolic indices in adults who have diabetes mellitus (DM) and chronic kidney disease (CKD).All patients evaluated at a DRC in a single tertiary referral center from January 1, 2008, to December 31, 2012, were identified. Serial renal and metabolic indices from January 1, 2004, to December 31, 2014, were recorded, and trends over time were analyzed by linear mixed-effects models.A total of 200 patients who had DM and CKD were identified and subdivided into 3 categories based on presumptive CKD etiology: 43 (21.5%) with type 1 DM (T1D) only, 127 (63.5%) with type 2 DM (T2D) only, and 30 (15.0%) with DM and an additional CKD etiology. Average annual absolute (mL/min per body surface area per year) and percentage (%/year) changes, respectively, in Chronic Kidney Disease Epidemiology Collaboration estimated glomerular filtration rate before vs after first DRC attendance were: -1.59 vs -3.10 (P=.31) and -1.22 vs -9.39 (P=.06) for T1D; -5.64 vs -3.07 (P=.004) and -10.88 vs -9.94 (P=.70) for T2D; and -6.50 vs +0.91 (P<.001) and -13.28 vs -2.29 (P=.001) for DM with an additional CKD etiology. Glycemic control worsened in those who had T2D, whereas trends in total cholesterol levels improved in those who had T1D.After first DRC attendance, the absolute rate of estimated glomerular filtration rate decline remained similar for those who had T1D, but it slowed for those who had T2D or DM with additional CKD etiology. Thus, benefits of combined diabetology and nephrology consultation may vary for different diabetic subpopulations.
