To investigate whether a correlation was found with various clinical stages of the disease and sonographic findings by using Duplex Doppler Ultrasound. To assess whether increased renal vascular resistance in asymptomatic patients correlated with mild renal functional impairment. It is well known that the prevalence of type 2 diabetes is expanding its territory all over the world with no realms. The additional fact that increased toll of mortality due to cardiovascular diseases and end-stage renal diseases which has been profoundly correlated with the most prevalent disease condition is also encroaching an alarming state.
