Background: Diabetes mellitus with its accompanying vascular complications is on a rise globally and a similar trend has been observed in Libya too. Early detection, effective monitoring and timely management is important to control this growing problem. Various studies have shown microalbuminuria as an early indicator of nephropathy in diabetes mellitus. The present study is aimed at evaluating microalbuminuria and HbA1C in type 2 diabetes mellitus.
