Our primary objective was to evaluate the renal volume in diabetic patients of more than one year of duration. We also
aimed to evaluate the renal resistive index in diabetic patients of more than one year of duration


Renal volume, renal resistive index (R.I), Glomerular ltration rate (G.F.R), Proteinuria
