Diabetic Kidney Disease Overview

Diabetic kidney disease (DKD), also referred to as diabetic nephropathy (DN), is a clinical condition marked by persistent albuminuria and a gradual decline in renal function. This term implies the existence of a recognizable pattern of glomerular disease. Typically, DKD is linked with high blood pressure, leading to increased cardiovascular risks and mortality. The causes of DKD are intricate and likely involve various factors, with hyperglycemia being the primary contributor. Initial stages of DKD may be asymptomatic, but as renal function diminishes, the accumulation of toxic wastes can lead to symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, hiccups, and weight gain due to fluid retention. Untreated cases may progress to heart failure and pulmonary edema.

Detecting and diagnosing DKD poses challenges. Screening and renal biopsy are the main diagnostic methods used to identify DKD in patients. In instances of nonalbuminuric DKD, other potential diagnoses considered include ischemic nephropathy, dysproteinemia, and tubulointerstitial nephritis (TIN).

Diabetic Kidney Disease Epidemiology Segmentation

Among the 7MM, the United States accounted for the highest number of diagnosed prevalent cases of DKD, i.e., ~45% of the total cases in the 7MM in 2023.

Among EU4 and the UK, Germany accounted for the largest number of DKD cases, whereas France accounted for the lowest number of cases in 2023.

The diabetic kidney disease market report proffers epidemiological analysis for the study period 2020–2034 in the 7MM segmented into:

  • Total Prevalent Cases of Diabetes
  • Total Prevalent Cases of DKD
  • Total Diagnosed Prevalent Cases of DKD
  • Age-specific Cases of DKD
  • Stage-specific Cases of DKD

Diabetic Kidney Disease Treatment Market 

The primary approach to treating DKD involves the reduction of blood pressure, as even a slight elevation in blood pressure can rapidly exacerbate kidney disease. Additionally, it is crucial to manage blood sugar levels to decelerate the progression of diabetic nephropathy. Fundamental methods for lowering blood pressure encompass weight loss, reduced salt intake, abstaining from alcohol and tobacco, and engaging in regular exercise.

The preferred medications for blood pressure management often include angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors. Capoten (captopril), unlike many ACE inhibitors, is not a prodrug. It competes with AT-I for ACE binding, hindering the enzymatic breakdown of angiotensin I (AT-I) into angiotensin II (AT-II), consequently heightening plasma renin activity. Another medication, enalapril, is an inactive prodrug that undergoes hepatic transformation to generate enalaprilat, its active form. Enalaprilat acts on the Renin-Angiotensin-Aldosterone System (RAAS) to impede ACE, leading to the suppression of RAAS and exhibiting antihypertensive effects in individuals with low-renin hypertension.

In September 2019, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the first therapeutic drug designed to treat DKD, INVOKANA (canagliflozin). This medication, categorized as a sodium-glucose co-transporter 2 (SGLT2) inhibitor, plays a crucial role in the majority of glucose reabsorption from the tubular lumen. Canagliflozin inhibits SGLT2, resulting in a decrease in the reabsorption of filtered glucose, a reduction in the renal threshold for glucose (RTG), and consequently, an increase in urinary glucose excretion (UGE). Furthermore, in August 2019, the European Medicines Agency (EMA) accepted the submission for the extension of its license.

Diabetic Kidney Disease Market Dynamics

The dynamics of the DKD market are expected to change in the coming years. The global rise in diabetes prevalence has contributed significantly to the surge in DKD cases, creating a substantial patient population in need of effective treatments. As awareness about the complications associated with diabetes, including kidney disease, increases, there is a growing demand for therapeutic interventions that specifically target DKD. Additionally, advancements in diagnostic technologies enable earlier and more accurate detection of kidney disease in diabetic patients, fostering a proactive approach to management. 

Furthermore, many potential therapies are being investigated for the treatment of DKD, and it is safe to predict that the treatment space will significantly impact the DKD market during the forecast period. Moreover, the anticipated introduction of emerging therapies with improved efficacy and a further improvement in the diagnosis rate are expected to drive the growth of the diabetic kidney disease market in the 7MM.

However several factors may impede the growth of the DKD market. One of the primary challenges is the complexity of the disease itself. DKD is intricately linked to diabetes, a condition with multifaceted causes and manifestations. This complexity makes it challenging to develop targeted and effective treatments.

Moreover, DKD treatment poses a significant economic burden and disrupts patients’ overall well-being and QOL. Furthermore, the DKD market growth may be offset by failures and discontinuation of emerging therapies. In addition, the undiagnosed, unreported cases and the unawareness about the disease may also impact the DKD  market growth.

A deeper understanding of the molecular mechanisms of DKD onset and progression is necessary for the development of new and innovative treatments for DKD. Furthermore, as DKD often goes undiagnosed due to its initial lack of symptoms, the use of advanced predictive tests for early detection can augment physicians’ capacity to make well-informed treatment decisions. This, in turn, can result in improved clinical outcomes and streamline more effective therapeutic interventions.
