Synopsis: 
This paper sought to determine the prevalence of nephropathy in Type 2 diabetic patients in Tunisia. Clinical and biochemical factors as well as chronic complications of the disease were determined in comparison to healthy subjects. Regular monitoring of Type 2 diabetic patients may help prevent or delay the onset of nephropathy.

ABSTRACT

Objective: The purpose was to compare the characteristics of Tunisians with Type 2 diabetes mellitus (Type 2 DM) and nephropathy with those without nephropathy. This study assessed whether or not phenotypic characteristics can predict nephropathy development in Type 2 DM. The prevalence of nephropathy in Tunisian Type 2 DM patients, and their relationship with clinical and biochemical factors as well as chronic complications of the disease were determined.
