medical research covered in thisvolume: epidemiology, physiologyand pathophysioยญ logy, laboratory methodology, and renal pathology. New studies deal with the diagnosis and treatment of both incipient and overt nephropathy by metabolie, antihypertensive, and dietary invention. Considerable progress has been made in the management of end-stage renal failure and also in the management and treatment of nephropathy in the pregnant diabetic woman. Diabetic nephropathy is a worldwide problem, but it is more clearly defined in Europe and North America where facilities for the diagnosis and treatment of diabetes and its complications are readily available. Much more work needs to be done in other parts of the world, as it appears from this book. It is hoped that we now have a handbook for the kidney and hypertension in diabetes and that further progress can be made in clinical work in diagnosing and treating diabetic patients. Much more work still needs to be done regarding patient education with respect to complications. Many diabetics have now been trained to take part in the management of their metabolie control; they should also be trained to take part in the follow-up and treatment of complications. This volume also underlines the considerable need for future research. So far, research in this field has been carried out in relatively few countries and centers in the world. The editor is sure that this volume will also stimulate further advanยญ cement in clinical science within the field of diabetic renal disease
