Data are expressed as the mean ± SD for normal distribution. Nonnormally distributed values are presented as median (interquartile range). values represent the treatment group versus the control group. represent versus baseline (week 0), paired -test for normal distribution or Wilcoxon matched-pairs signed-rank test for nonnormal distribution. Albu, albuminuria; FPG, fasting plasma glucose; PBG, postprandial blood glucose; TPU, total proteinuria; A/C, urinary albumin to creatinine ratio.
