aSerum creatinine value from DM-N patients was higher, whereas urinary protein excretion from IgA-N patients was lower than other proteinuric patients. SCr, serum creatinine; UP/UCr, urinary protein excretion; MCNS, minimal change nephrotic syndrome; FGS, focal glomerular sclerosis; IgA-N, IgA nephropathy; MN, membranous nephropathy; DM-N, diabetic nephropathy.
