Diabetes mellitus is one of the foremost diseases in the modern era and diabetic nephropathy contributes to a major percentage of end-stage kidney disease. Although diabetic nephropathy is difficult to revert back, detection of nondiabetic renal disease (NDRD) is important to detect as most of them are treatable. We describe a case of a 62-year-old female with long-standing diabetes mellitus presenting with massive proteinuria and clinical features of nephrotic syndrome. The kidney biopsy showed class III diabetic nephropathy along with focal proliferative glomerulonephritis with crescent formations. The immunofluorescence study showed strong mesangial IgA deposition with the predominance of lambda stain. This confirmed the diagnosis of diabetic nephropathy with superimposed IgA nephropathy. We reviewed eight Indian studies herewith to demonstrate NDRD spectrum in the Indian diabetic scenario.
