Jabbar Desai, Amit B. Porwal, U.T. Mane, Amit C. Botre and Nitin B. Jadhav    

Abstract: We studied 120 newly diagnosed diabetes mellitus type 2 patients for detection of microalbuminuria through the dipstick method. Only patients who were diagnosed with diabetes mellitus type 2 at the time of admission were included in the study. Known diabetics were excluded. Early morning midstream urine is taken for sampling. HbA1c in females was higher and more statistically significant than males. Blood urea and serum creatinine levels too were noted to be slightly higher in patients with microalbuminuria as compared to those who did not have microalbuminuria diabetic retinopathy was seen in 25% of patients with microalbuminuria. Microalbuminuria was associated with abnormal HDL levels but normal LDL levels. A total of 7.5% patients who had microalbuminuria had an increased serum cholesterol level and 22.5% were noted to have an increased triglyceride level.
