Abstract

 
Keywords: Herbal medicine, Diabetic nephropathy, End-stage renal disease

Implication for health policy/practice/research/medical education

Diabetic kidney disease is the leading cause of end-stage renal failure worldwide, however current treatments remain suboptimal. Recently various plants have shown beneficial effects not only on kidney function in diabetes mellitus, but also on kidney toxicities induced by some drugs or toxins. The active substances recognized in these plants include polysaccharides, flavonoids, xanthones and peptides.
