In April 2016 Manchester eScholar was replaced by the University of Manchester’s new Research Information Management System, Pure. All scholarly work records and full-texts stored in Manchester eScholar were migrated to the new system prior to this transition. From August 2016 the University’s research outputs will be available to view and download via the new Research Portal. Until then the old eScholar content WILL BE TEMPORARILY available to search and browse via this archive.

Abstract

AIMS: To compare the renal effects of low- vs. high-dose atorvastatin in patients with Type 2 diabetes mellitus and optimally managed early renal disease. METHODS: We compared the 2-year progression of nephropathy in a double-blind randomized controlled trial of atorvastatin 80 mg/day (n = 60) vs. 10 mg/day (n = 59) in patients with Type 2 diabetes with microalbuminuria or proteinuria [mean (sd): age 64 years (10 years); HbA(1c) 7.7% (1.3%), 61 mmol/mol (10 mmol/mol); blood pressure 131/73 mmHg; renin-angiotensin system blocker use > 80%; dual blockade > 67%] recruited from diabetes clinics in Greater Manchester. RESULTS: Over (mean) 2.1 years of follow-up, the Modification of Diet in Renal Disease estimated glomerular filtration rate declined by 3 ml min(-1) 1.73 m(-2) in the combined group. The mean (95% CI) between-group difference during follow-up was not significant [2.2 ml min(-1) 1.73 m(-2) (-1.1 to 5.4 ml min(-1) 1.73: m(-2) ), P = 0.20] after adjusting for baseline differences in renal function; positive difference favours 80 mg dose. Similarly, there was no significant difference in creatinine clearance by Cockcroft and Gault [2.5 ml/min (-2.4 to 7.3 ml/min), P = 0.32]; serum creatinine/24-h urine collections [4.0 ml/min (-4.8 to 12.7 ml/min), P = 0.38]; cystatin C (P = 0.69); or 24-h urine protein or albumin excretion (P = 0.92; P = 0.93). We recorded no significant between-group differences in deaths or adverse events. CONCLUSIONS: In patients with Type 2 diabetes with early renal disease, we found no statistical difference in renal function between those taking high- or low-dose atorvastatin over 2 years. We cannot exclude a beneficial effect of < 1.6 ml min(-1) 1.73 m(-2) year(-1) on Modification of Diet in Renal Disease estimated glomerular filtration rate, or if blood pressure management or if renin-angiotensin system blocker use had not been optimized.
