The effect of a low-sodium diet on the abnormal glomerular hemodynamics of early diabetes was studied in rats. The aim of the present meta-analysis is the assessment of the overall efficacy and safety profile of these drugs. A total of 38 trials (23 997 participants) were included. The increase in proximal reabsorption leads to a decrease in solute load to the macula densa, deactivation of the tubuloglomerular feedback, and increases in glomerular filtration rate. The antidiabetogenic effect was long-lasting as it was maintained up to 1 month after cessation of therapy. Tungstate-treated STZ-diabetic rats showed a significant reduction in fluid and food intake, plasma glucose, triglycerides, and free fatty acid levels, and improved tolerance to glucose in OGTT, owing to tungstate-mediated enhancement of insulin activity rather than increased insulin levels.

The impaired natriuretic response to saline challenge was mainly due to greater rates
