Background: Ischemic heart diseases are considered as the leading cause of death throughout the world and a major cause of hospital admissions. Diabetes mellitus together with hypertension are among the modifiable risk factors.
Aims of the study: To assess the glycemic control and renal function tests of patients with ischemic heart diseases.
Methods: Fasting blood samples were obtained from seventy one cases of ischemic heart disease who were admitted to cardiac care unit, mean age 60.9 years old, sera were used to measure urea, creatinine and glucose by enzymatic colorimetric method while blood with anticoagulant used for glycated hemoglobin measurement by ion exchange resin quantitative colorimetric determination and urine samples were obtained for analysis of protein/creatinine ratio by turbidimetric method. Measurement of micro albumin in urine is based on immunoassay with flouresence detection.Statistics included t-test and linear regression.
