Background & Aim:

predictor of diabetic nephropathy. The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence of proteinuria in patients with

recently diagnosed type 2 diabetes mellitus.

Diabetic nephropathy is a common cause of end-stage renal disease. Microalbuminuria is a

Patients and Method:

2 diabetic patients referred to the Institute of Endocrinology and Metabolism between 2004 and 2006. The patients were

evaluated for age and sex and the following tests were performed: FBS, HbAlc, BUN, Cr, and 24-hour urine microalbumin.

The results were compared by t-test.

This observational, descriptive, analytical study was carried out on 288 recently diagnosed type

Results:

(51%) had microalbuminuria. 64.6% of the subjects were female and 35.4% were male. The sex/age ratio in the two

groups, i.e. with and without diabetic nephropathy, was similar. The mean age of the patients was 52.60(

There was no significant difference between the two groups in terms of the mean values of FBS, BUN, age, and

sex(p<0.05), but there was a significant correlation between diabetic nephropathy and HbAlc and Cr concentrations

(P

From a total of 288 diabetic patients, 165 cases(57.3%) had diabetic nephropathy. In this group, 147 cases±9.45) years.0.05).

Conclusion:

mellitus was 57.3%. Screening all newly diagnosed type 2 diabetic patients for microalbuminuria is recommended.
