New Study Spotlights High Prevalence of Dry Eye in Type 2 Diabetic Nephropathy Patients

7 May 2024 • In recent research, dry eye prevalence was significantly higher among those with type 2 diabetic nephropathy (T2DN) compared to diabetics without renal complications (55.6% versus 37.3%).

Factors such as advanced age, high HbA1C levels, and decreased estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) were independently associated with DE in T2DN patients.

Additionally, T2DN patients with DE showed higher rates of comorbidities including hypertension, peripheral nerve complications, and anemia, along with elevated plasma glucose, HbA1C, urea, creatinine, and CRP-hs levels compared to those without DE.
