The genetic polymorphism of apolipoprotein E (epsilon 2, epsilon 3 and epsilon 4) is associated with lipid abnormalities. It has been suggested that lipid abnormalities may contribute to the development and progression of kidney diseases, including diabetic nephropathy. Thus, in this study we compared the apo E allele frequencies among 146 non-insulin… CONTINUE READING
