Keywords: Metformin, Diabetic nephropathy, Podocyte

Implication for health policy/practice/research/medical education

It is acceptable to interpret that metformin has three different responsibilities including: blood glucose regulatory effect, renal tubular cell protection by acting as an effective antioxidant and finally protective effect on diabetic nephropathy through saving the podocytes. Hence, diabetic patients may benefit from all of these three distinct ameliorative effects.
