Abstract

A new study reports that addition of the nonsteroidal mineralocorticoid receptor antagonist finerenone to renin-angiotensin system (RAS) blockade resulted in a reduction in albuminuria in patients with diabetic nephropathy. Such a strategy might provide an opportunity to maximize the beneficial effects of RAS blockade without increasing the risk of hyperkalaemia.
