Abstract: This paper uses actual data from 267 patients with non-insulin-dependent (Type 2) diabetes mellitus in order to see how the various risk factors can affect the progression of diabetic nephropathy. Examination of each independent variable individually can only provide a preliminary idea of how important each variable is by itself. The relative importance of all the variables has to be examined simultaneously by multivariate methods. The approach succeeds in identifying preliminary risk factors such as smoking for males, although the females had higher fasting blood glucose at diagnosis. Not surprisingly, hypertension is common among patients of both sexes and it has an association with proteinuria in female patients in the sample.
