Abstract

Purpose: To study the relationship of various stages of Diabetic Retinopathy with severity of Diabetic
Nephropathy and Diabetic Neuropathy.
Materials and Methods: 120 patients of type 2 diabetic patients were screened for Retinopathy,
nephropathy and neuropathy. Investigations like Fundus examination with Indirect Ophthalmoscopy,
CBC, RBS, RFT – S. Creatinine, S. Urea; Urine Samples – Microalbuminuria; HbA1c; Lipid Profile
and Creatinine clearance, Vitamin B12, Nerve conduction Velocity Test and Clinical Reflex Test were
performed on the patients with.
Results: In present study we have found significant correlation between Retinopathy, Diabetic Nephropathy
and Neuropathy. Severity of neuropathy and nephropathy increased with increase in the grade of
retinopathy.
Conclusion: In our study the incidence of neuropathy and nephropathy also increases as severity of diabetic
retinopathy increases. Thus, all diabetic patients must be screened for retinopathy as it can help determine
the presence of other organ involvement.

Keywords: Diabetic retinopathy, Diabetic neuropathy.
