Objectives: To evaluate the association between micro-albuminuria and glycemic status among type 2 diabetic patients in Hyderabad, Sindh.

All the patients aged between 30 and 50 years, of either genders, with both good controlled as well as uncontrolled diabetes mellitus type II admitted in the medicine ward were included. All the participants were divided into two groups according to their glycemic level. The Group I comprised of patients with poor glycemic control that is HbA1c >7% while Group II comprises of patients with good glycemic control that is HbA1c<7%.

Results: Majority (56.4%) of participants in the study were Male while most (31.0%) them belongs to age group 41-45 years. The mean age of all patients was 42.3 ± 4.1 years. The mean HbA1c level in group 1(poorly controlled) and 2 (good control) participants was 8.04± 0.97% and 5.87 ± 0.44%. There was a statistically significant association (p<0.05) between poorly controlled glycemic status and micro-albuminuria.

Conclusion: Micro-albuminuria is significantly associated with the poor glycemic status among type 2 diabetic patients.
