The aim of this paper is to determine prevalence and risk factors of chronic kidney disease (CKD) in the comprehensive care program DiabetIMSS.


Cross-sectional study in 488 patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM2) included in the program DiabetIMSS. Sociodemographic, clinical, biochemical, and kidney function variables were collected.


Prevalence of CKD was 32% [early nephropathy (EN) 19% and overt nephropathy (ON) 13%]. Patients with more severe nephropathy significantly (p < 0.05) had: older age [normal kidney function (NKF) 54±11, EN 54±10, ON 63±9, years)], cardiovascular disease (NKF 1%, EN 5%, ON 11%), hypertension (NKF 65%, EN 63%, ON 85%), longer duration of DM2 (NKF 5%, EN 5%, ON 9%,) and of hypertension (NKF 5%, EN 6%, ON 9%), glycemic lack of control (NKF 46%, EN 62%, ON 60%), hyperuricemia (NKF 7%, EN 13%, ON 23%), anemia (NKF 1%, EN 4%, ON 10%) and metabolic syndrome (NKF 79%, EN 82%, ON 93%). Uncontrolled hypertension and DM2, cardiovascular disease and hyperuricemia significantly predicted the presence of nephropathy


A third of patients attending to DiabetIMSS had CKD and has not been previously diagnosed. Multiple risk factors are present in this high-risk population; their identification and control are extraordinarily important. Moreover, educative interventions for primary health-care professionals to improve health of this kind of patients are needed.
