INTRODUCTION: Type 2 diabetes is a chronic disease associated to the presence of multiple risk factors. Among recently studied factors we cite PCR and micro-albumin. OBJECTIVE: In the present study we intend to determine the correlation between urine albumin excretion rate, CRP levels and type of vascular complications in type 2 diabetes. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We recruited 48 type 2 diabetic subjects subdivided into three groups according to the type of vascular complications (GI: type 2 diabetics without complications, GII: type 2 diabetics with microvascular complications and GIII: type 2 diabetics with macrovascular complications). RESULTS: We found a significant elevated levels of CRP and micro-albumin (P<0.05) when we compared diabetics with vascular complications to those without any complications. Diabetics with macrovascular complications have the highest levels of CRP and micro-albumin. Significant positive correlation was found between CRP and micro-albumin levels in a total group of diabetics (r=0.32; P<0.05). CONCLUSION: The determination of CRP and microalbumin levels represents an interest in the screening of cardiovascular disease in type 2 diabetics.
