    Aim: To compare effectiveness of angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors (ACEis)/angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs) for protecting Type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM2) patients from renal function decline in a real-world setting. Methods: Retrospective cohort study of new ACEi/ARB users in 2007-2012 in an unselected primary care DM2 population. Outcome is decline in renal function stage (combining estimated glomerular filtration rate and albuminuria). Patients were matched on a propensity score. Extended Cox models with time-varying covariates were used to estimate hazard ratios of outcome. Results: The time to renal function decline for ARB users was slightly, but not significantly longer than for ACEi users (hazard ratio: 0.80; 95% CI: 0.58-1.10; p = 0.166). Conclusion: This study did not show significant differences between the classes in preventing renal function decline in DM2 patients in primary care.
