Authors : Blessing O. Idonije, Oloruntoba Festus and Olarewaju M. Oluba

Abstract: Diabetes mellitus is characterized by some specific complications including diabetic nephropathy. Plasma creatinine and urea are useful clinical tools in assessing renal function, despite some limitations. In the present study, plasma glucose, creatinine and urea concentrations were determined in type 2 diabetic patients attending Irrua Specialist Hospital, Ekpoma, Edo state, Nigeria. About 80 (35 males and 45 females) diabetic patients aged between 30-70 years serving as tests and 50 (30 males and 20 females) age apparently healthy individuals of similar age bracket serving as controls were used for the study.
