This study shows a high prevalence of MAU (28%) among newly diagnosed Diabetic population which was in concurrence with the earlier studies conducted by Olivarius et al., Vijay Viswanathan, Seena R, et al and Varghese A, Deepa R, et al. The prevalence of Diabetic Retinopathy in our study population was very High (13 %). This study also showed a statistically significant correlation of MAU with Diabetic retinopathy (which was present in 5 persons with MAU and 3 without MAU). This was also the observation of Vinconsin, Epidemiologic study on retinopathy and studies conducted by Mohamed Afkhami, Manaviat, et al, Iran. This study shows a significant negative correlation of MAU with family history of Diabetes (P = 0.0275). 10 (100 %) of family history positive Diabetes did not have MAU, where as 17 persons among those who did not have family history had MAU. This observation was in contrast to many of the previous observations of Vijay et al, Chennai. This study also showed that other variables like age, sex, BMI, FBG,PPBG, smoking, alcoholism and serum cholesterol did not correlate significantly with microalbuminuria in newly detected diabetes. Therefore urinary screening for microalbumuria in newly detected diabetes, improves the early detection and primary prevention of diabetic complications.
