    Is insulin resistance an underlying mechanism for endothelial dysfunction in the kidney and other microcirculatory beds?

    I agree. The prevalence of obesity has substantially increased in the past decade. There are likely non-diabetes and non-hypertension mediated mechanisms of kidney injury in obesity. Interventional studies that target these mechanisms are warranted.

    A lot might be learned from studying the implantation biopsies of living kidney donors. Obesity is not uncommon in this population.
