After the invention of Angiotensin Converting Enzyme Inhibitors/Angiotensin Receptor Blockers (ACE-i/ARB), for nearly two decades, there has not been another drug to prevent the progression of diabetic kidney disease. Recent trials have indicated that some of the anti-hyperglycemic drug classes have positive renal outcomes thus potentially changing the course of renal disease. Here, we summarized the relevant evidence with medications used in diabetes mellitus, especially focusing on the most recent innovations predominantly used in type-2 diabetes.
