Correlation of serum creatinine concentration, retinopathy and frequency of hypertension in relation to the age of long-term diabetics in a rural population



Correlation of serum creatinine concentration, retinopathy and frequency of hypertension in relation to the age of long-term diabetics in a rural population



Zeitschrift für die Gesamte Innere Medizin und ihre Grenzgebiete 38(2): 44-47



274 diabetics with a duration of the disease between 15 and 54 years were examined regarding the relations between their renal function, the frequency of retinopathy and hypertension and their age. 41.6% of the patients showed an increased creatinine value, a retinopathy occurred in 59.5% of all diabetics. In the increase of creatinine as well as in the retinopathy there was a close correlation of the retinopathy and the duration of the disease, but the retinopathy was significantly more frequent in younger persons. It is nearly always accompanied by hypertension. The latter way found in 69.3% of the patients. The duration of diabetes seems to have no influence on the frequency of hypertension, but the level of creatinine in patients under 60 does. Increased creatinine values as well as a retinopathy and hypertension were preponderant in males of this age group. References to the reduction of the high frequency of hypertension, retinopathy and of increased creatinine are given.
