Objectives:Diabetes is a chronic disease with increasing morbidity and mortality. Microalbuminuria is seen in diabetic patients due to nephropathy. Patients with microalbuminuria are at high risk for atherosclerosis. It is thought that comparing the carotid artery, which is most frequently affected by atherosclerosis, by measuring and comparing the renal resistive index, may be beneficial for early diagnosis and treatment of diabeticcomplications.
