The relationship between serum lipids, apolipoprotein levels including apolipoprotein (a) to albumin excretion rate (AER) in 52 (17 male, 35 female) type 2 diabetic patients was studied. Patients were classified in groups as follows: (1) patients with normal AER (< 30 mg/24 h); (2) patients with microalbuminuria (AER 30-300 mg/24 h), and (3) patients with macroalbuminuria (AER > 300 mg/24 h). Apolipoprotein B levels were significantly (p < 0.05) elevated in the patients with macroalbuminuria… CONTINUE READING
