Aim: To see the occurrence of moderately increased albuminuria (microalbuminuria MA) and elevated fasting serum triglyceride levels in Type 2 diabetic patients. Study design: Observational study Place and duration of study: Indoor, Department of Medicine, Sughra Shafi Teaching Hospital, Narowal, from 30th December2016 to 28th February 2017. Methods: Analysis included data of 100 patients, both males and females, admitted in the department of medicine. All patients included in the study were diagnosed cases of Type 2 diabetes mellitus. Patients with Type 1 diabetes were excluded from the study. All patients were checked for microalbuminuria and fasting serum triglyceride levels. Patients fasting blood glucose was also checked. Chi-square test was applied and p Value of < 0.05 was accepted as significant. Results: A total of 100 patients were included in the study. Mean age of the patients ranged from 53.95±12.2 and mean duration of diabetes mellitus was 10.91±7.06. MA was found in 32% of the whole sample and the rate was higher, 56.3% among females than 43.8% males. It was seen in patients with mean fasting blood glucose of 223.88±60.68 and mean fasting serum triglyceride of 293.25±91.91. It was also seen significant with duration of diabetes. Conclusion: The prevalence of moderately increased albuminuria in Type 2 diabetic patients was high and significantly associated with fasting serum triglyceride levels.
