Preprints with The Lancet is part of SSRN´s First Look, a place where journals and other research experts identify content of interest prior to publication. These preprint papers are not peer-reviewed and are posted here as part of a 12-month trial. Authors have either opted in at submission to The Lancet family of journals to post their preprints on Preprints with The Lancet, or submitted directly via SSRN. The usual SSRN checks and a Lancet-specific check for appropriateness and transparency have been applied. These papers should not be used for clinical decision making or reporting of research to a lay audience without indicating that this is preliminary research that has not been peer-reviewed.

Abstract

Background: Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) has been a leading cause of chronic kidney disease (CKD) with a heterogeneous distribution worldwide. Optimal health-care planning requires an understanding how the burden of CKD due to T2DM has changed over time and geographic location, as well as the potential roles of sociodemographic, clinical, and behavioral factors in these changes.

Methods: We used the Global Burden of Disease data from 1990 to 2017 at the global, regional, and national levels to investigate changes in the incidence, death, and disability-adjusted life years (DALYs) of CKD due to T2DM, incorporating both epidemiological research and risk-factor monitoring.

Findings: The incident cases of CKD due to T2DM worldwide in 2017 had increased by 74% compared to 1990, and DALYs had increased by 113%. The SDI was significantly and negatively correlated with ASIR, ASDR, and the age-standardized DALY rate. However, in 82 countries and territories the burden was not alleviated in parallel with socioeconomic development. High systolic blood pressure was the leading risk factor for CKD due to T2DM, while high body mass index represented a growing threat globally across the entire SDI spectrum.

Interpretation: We suggest a more-pragmatic approach focusing on early diagnosis and primary care to reduce the risk of death in low-SDI regions. Our findings indicate that sociodemographic prosperity is far from a decisive factor. Interventions for the increasing burden should address high systolic blood pressure as well as overweight and obesity problems, especially in high-income regions.
