“There is enough growing insight that ectopic lipid—the accumulation of lipid in non-adipose tissue—is associated with structural and functional changes of mesangial cells, podocytes, and proximal tubular cells to propose the development of obesity related glomerulopathy as a maladapted response to hyperfiltration and albuminuria. In this Review, we discuss the emerging role of ectopic lipid (the accumulation of lipid in non-adipose tissue) from metabolically unhealthy obesity as a novel pathway of obesity-related renal disease.”

A Role for Non-Proteinuric Pathways in loss of Renal Function in patients with Type 2 DIABETES? Lancet Diabetes Endocrinol, 2015, in press.
“In this personal view we analyze a novel phenotype of renal function decline in type 2 diabetes. Largely on the basis of data in type 1 diabetes, the natural history of diabetic renal disease has been categorized in a sequence of stages: normoalbuminuria, microalbuminuria and macroalbuminuria. Progressive decline of glomerular filtration rate was thought to parallel the onset of macroalbuminuria (overt nephropathy), whereas glomerular hyperfiltration was considered a hallmark of earlier stages. Recent studies clearly demonstrated that albuminuria is a continuum and that the GFR may start to decline before progression to overt nephropathy. In addition to proteinuria, other risk factors may sustain GFR deterioration including female gender, obesity, dyslipidemia (in particular hypertriglyceridemia), hypertension and glomerular hyperfiltration. This may explain why patients with type 2 diabetes can have renal insufficiency even before the onset of overt nephropathy.”
