ABSTRACT

Objective: To measure the correlation between microalbuminuria and serum uric acid level in Type-2 diabetic nephropathy. Methods: This cross-sectional study was done in department of Medicine, DHQ Teaching Hospital, Sargodha from August 2014 to February 2015. A total of 200 patients with Type-2 diabetic nephropathy were enrolled in the study. Demographic data and contact details were obtained. Serum Uric acid and microalbuminuria by albumin to creatinine ratio (ACR) in random urine sample was measured at the time of inclusion of patients. All the information was collected through a pre-defined proforma. Pearson correlation coefficient and t-test were used to assess correlation and significance respectively. Results: Out of 200 cases, 29%(n=58) were between 16-40 years of age while 71%(n=142) were between 41-65 years of age, Mean ± SD was calculated as 48.1±10.26 years, 48.5%(n=97) were male and 51.5%(n=103) were females, Mean serum uric acid level was calculated as 6.99±1.01 mg/dL while microalbuminuria was calculated as 5.63±1.08 mg/mmol, r value was 0.0838 which is a positive correlation. Conclusion: The results of our study concluded that level of serum uric acid and microalbuminuria are significantly correlated to nephropathy in patients having Type-2 diabetes mellitus.
