Baseline clinical and laboratory parameters in patients with type 2 diabetes according to albuminuria status.

Values are mean ± SD, number of patients (%), median (interquartile range), and geometric means (95% CI) unless otherwise indicated. DR, diabetic retinopathy; DN, diabetic neuropathy; SBP, systolic blood pressure; DBP, diastolic blood pressure; TC, total cholesterol; TG, triglycerides; TB, total bilirubin; DB, direct bilirubin; UA, uric acid; Ca, calcium; P, phosphorous; Scr, serum creatinine; eGFR, estimated glomerular filtration rate; CRP, C-reactive protein; ACR, Urine albumin creatinine ratio; PCR, Urine protein creatinine ratio. *P-values were calculated using log-transformed values. P-values were calculated by ANOVA or Pearson χ2 test where appropriate. The same superscripted letters indicate statistical significance according to Tukey's multiple comparison test.
