Dr K Satyawani, chennai    31 January 2018

of angiotensin II type 1 receptor (AT1R) genetic variant associated with normoalbuminiric (NA) and albuminuric CKD in South Indian population with type 2 diabetes. The findings of this study revealed that apart from the relatively low eGFR levels in the current study, NA-CKD patients were older, with high prevalence of HTN and dyslipidemia than NA and CKD groups. The results showed that ESR was significantly higher in NA-CKD group. It was speculated that this may be due to cholesterol microemboli resulting in inflammation, which in turn elevates the ESR. It was stated that the present study is the first of its kind to determine polymorphism of AT1R in NA-CKD subjects in South Indian population.
