C hronic kidney disease is a major public health problem. This observational epidemiological study aimed to evaluate the prevalence of proteinuric nephropathy in patients with type 2 diabetes by consulting community-based general practitioners in French overseas departments and territories (DOM-TOM). Screening was carried out with reagent strips Albustix? for proteinuria and, in case of trace amounts or a negative result, Microalbustix? for microalbuminuria. Ninety one general practitioners participated in the study and 402 patients were included (54% female, mean age 60.1?11.2 years). Duration of diabetes was 8.9?6.6 years and mean HbA1c was 7.3?1.4% (52.2% with HbA1c ≤ 7%). Screening was positive for 45.7% of the patients: 23.6% positive for proteinuria with Albustix? [95%CI: 19.5%; 27.8%] and 22.1% with Microalbustix? [95%CI: 18.1%; 26.2%] (macroalbuminuria 6.2% [95%CI: 4.1%; 9.0%], microalbuminuria 15.9% [95%CI: 12.5%; 19.9%]. In conclusion, screening with reagent strips revealed that nearly half of the patients had proteinuria or albuminuria, thus confirming the high prevalence of nephropathy in type 2 diabetes patients living in the DOM-TOM and illustrating the need for frequent renal function screening in type 2 diabetics in general medicine for the prevention of chronic kidney disease.
