Abstract: The study was to evaluate the renal changes in diabetic patient using ultrasound scan. This cross - sectional study was done in Khartoum State from the period from December 2021 to January 2023, for 200 diabetic patients (96 males and 104 females), all of them had type 2, their age ranged between 30 - 90 years old. patient with renal congenital anomalies, renal tract obstruction, malignant tumor and renal failure were excluded, all patients had been scanned with ultrasound for measuring renal dimensions, renal length was also been calculated and echogenicity was evaluated, The study revealed that increase in duration of diabetes has direct impact on kidney texture. The study showed the renal changed associated with increase of Diabetes period. It was also observed that the both cortical and medulla thickness are affected with severity of diabetes that showed the import ants of ultrasound as a useful tool to measure renal volume and detecting renal changes in diabetic patient. The study showed the significant relation between the right medulla thickness and duration of diabetics, the result is significant at p = 0.03 (if Value is <0.05 considered significant) also study confirmed that the significant relation between the left medulla thickness and duration of diabetics also the result was significant at p = 0.048 (if Value is <0.05 considered significant).
