Two patients with type 2 DM developed acute kidney injury and lactic acidosis following colonoscopy despite withholding metformin. We recommend that DM patients on metformin also withhold ACEI, ARB until their dehydration is reversed after colonoscopy. This should reduce the risk of acute renal failure (ARF) and of lactic acidosis. © 2014.
