    Background: Diabetic nephropathy (DN) is part of the greatest broadly known diabetic microvascular intricacies inducing around 40% of patients with type 2-diabetes Mellitus (T2DM), Its advancements to end-stage renal disease (ESRD); the primary recognition of DN can be achieved with biomarkers of diabetes. This study evaluates the role of the power of the early biomarker recognition of DN in the T2DM serum. Design and Methods: A case-control study, it included 90-people, and composed from both genders and age range of individual study was (40-69 years); which divided into 3-groups by using the urinary albumin/ creatinine ratio (ACR). Included 60-patients with T2DM without/with proteinuria, which also divided into 2-groups group I, normoalbuminuria (<30 mg/g) and group II, microalbuminuria (30–300 mg/g); Addition to 30-persons, healthy control group (<30 mg/g), (free from a..
