The angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor drugs are now standard therapy for patients with diabetic nephropathy. The hypothesis of this study is that adding a diuretic agent (furosemide) will decrease the urine protein, which is a sign of disease, more than an angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor alone.

Condition Intervention
Diabetic Nephropathy Drug: Addition of furosemide 20 mg oral bid to baseline regimen

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Crossover Assignment
Masking: Double
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Maximizing the Benefit of RAS Blockade in Diabetic Nephropathy
