Dr. Advani's plan is to slow and potentially even reverse kidney damage in patients suffering from diabetes.

Your support makes it possible for us to fund vital research like Dr. Andrew Advani's. His studies look at how high blood pressure can damage the kidneys in diabetes patients.

Dr. Advani's research is aimed at finding new ways to preserve the health of the tiny blood vessels found in the kidneys, which is key in improving blood flow and limiting damage to the kidneys in people with diabetes.

Dr. Advani's plan is to slow and potentially even reverse kidney damage in patients suffering from diabetes.

Dr. Advani has found a group of drugs, called Histone Deacetylase Inhibitors, which are effective in slowing down the amount of protein that is leaked into the kidneys.

He has tested these drugs in models of early and advanced kidney disease, and the drugs have proven to be safe and well-tolerated. And that's good news for people with diabetes. Dr. Advani's plan is to slow and potentially even reverse kidney damage in patients suffering from diabetes.
