Introduction Diabetic nephropathy is associated with specific histological changes. Early detection of poor glomerular and tubular function can be achieved with biomarkers of diabetes. The aim of this study was to evaluate the accuracy of kidney dysfunction biomarkers in type 2 diabetes (T2D). Methods Patients with T2D were grouped according to their glycated hemoglobin level. Patients' urine and blood samples were taken to measure cystatin C (CysC), neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin… CONTINUE READING
