Obesity is a health care problem of epidemic proportions, and it further increases the risk of a number of diseases. No connection had beee however established until now between obesity and renal disease. Renal involvement in obesity is mainly silent (microalbuminuria and/or renal hyperfiltration) or, in a lesser number of cases, proteinuria in association to renal failure. The possible therapeutic outcomes for obesity-associated renal failure are unknown, but neither ACEI nor ARA-II agents appear to be useful.
