  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

We evaluated 386 patients with type ll diabetes regarding diabetic retinopathy and nephropathy, age, duration of diabetes, body mass index and serum levels of hemoglobin A1C, total cholesterol, triglycerides, high-and low-density lipoprotein cholesterols and lipoprotein (a) . Multiple linear regression analysis showed that the development of diabetic retinopathy was positively correlated with the duration of diabetes, the severity of diabetic nephropathy, and the serum lipoprotein (a) level. Diabetic patients with elevated serum protein (a) level would require close follow-up regarding diabetic retinopathy.
