Diabetes kidney disease is a leading cause for end stage renal disease in the western world. To date no treatment that can reverse renal damage exists.
Chronic hypoxia is one of the major key insults affecting the diabetic kidney, and many of the new treatments under study focus on it's consequences, but no treatment can improve the hypoxia as both increased renal perfusion and decreased renal perfusion may be associated with it's worsening. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) can improve renal hypoxia by increasing partial pressure of dissolved (non-hemoglobin-bound) oxygen without affecting it's demand. HBOT also recruits tissue and peripheral progenitors and supplies the optimal environment crucial for their proliferation and for tissue repair. Hyperbaric oxygen treatment was known for years as an effective treatment for diabetic ulcers. Recent trials have shown great impact on brain lesions (in diabetic and non-diabetic patients) it is now the time to evaluate the effect of HBOT on the diabetic kidney.
