Abstract: Aim: To study the correlation of Carotid intimal - medial thickness with Estimated glomerular filtration Rate in patients of diabetes mellitus Type 2 Material and methods: In the present study, a total of 50 patients were enrolled out of which 25 were diabetic. For all the patients, eGFR was calculated using crockford gault formula and mean CIMT was measured and then compared to 25 non diabetic patients. Correlation was then observed between change of CIMT with every stage of CKD for both groups. Results: There was a consecutive increase in mean CIMT for both diabetic and non diabetic population with worsening of eGFR and progression in stage of CKD. Conclusion: Patients with diabetes have higher mean CIMT when compared to non diabetic patients and there was an observed increase in mean CIMT with worsening of the eGFR or progression of stage of CKD. Mean CIMT was higher in patients with uncontrolled diabetes as compared with those with controlled diabetes.
