Abstract

Diabetic nephropathy, the leading cause of morbidity and mortality in adults with type 1 diabetes mellitus may have its roots since childhood. The occurrence of microalbuminuria in children with Type 1 Diabetes may provide an early opportunity to study the natural history and plan earlier interventions. This study was done in diabetic clinic and pediatric nephrology department of the Institute of Child Health and Hospital for Children, Egmore, Chennai to determine the prevalence of microalbuminuria in children with Type 1 Diabetes mellitus (DM). Prevalence of microalbuminuria in children with Type 1 DM in our study was 13.4%. Higher diabetic age and higher glycosylated hemoglobin (HBA1c) levels were found to be significantly associated with microalbuminuria.
