Risk factors for contrast nephropathy were prospectively studied in 17 patients with non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus undergoing cardioangiography. Contrast nephropathy, defined as a serum creatinine increase of greater than 25% at 3 day after angiography, occurred in 29.4% of diabetic patients. Patients who developed contrast nephropathy had significantly higher serum creatinine (Cr), fractional excretion of sodium (FENa), urinary albumin excretion rate (AER), and lower 24hr Ccr than… CONTINUE READING
