ABSTRACT:-The present Study was planned to understand the relation amongst the serum uric acid, Glycosylated Hemoglobin (HbA1c) and urinary Microalbumin in geriatric type 2 diabetes patients.Thirty patient of type diabetes mellitus with age and sex matched controls were included. The study was conducted using a single center in serial camps organized by Diabetic Association of India, Amravati branch.  We found multiple correlations (P<0.05) among the serum uric acid, HbA1c and urinary microalbumin in type2 Diabetes.
