Diabetic microvascular complications in the Middle East
What is it about?
There are 2 major classes of vascular complications in diabetes: microvascular & macrovascular. The former group includes eye (retinopathy), kidney (nephropathy) and nerve (neuropathy) complications. This study undertakes analysis of the prevalence of these complications in the State of Qatar.
Why is it important?
There is limited research on these complications in Middle Eastern populations. It may also shed some light on why some patients develop microvascular complications.
