Introduction: Renal damage occurs in maximum case of hypertension. It may be 100% prevalent when duration is more than 10 yrs and gets accelerated when there is simultaneous presence of other metabolic syndromes like DM-2, insulin resistance and obesity. If Kidney damage is detected in early stage with progression to end stage of renal disease drug treatment can be decided. Methodology: The Blood and Urine sample of 50 hypertensive patients with HTN were collected from OPD, Dawadmi Hospital and Health Centers, Dawadmi KSA for determination of serum creatinine and ACR respectively. Result: Hypertensive patients as having more than normal serum creatinine level have high value of UACR thus we can say that increment in serum creatinine level is advance stage of renal damage. Conclusion: The study concludes that hypertensive patients are more prone to renal damage which can be efficiently diagnosed by microalbuminuria than serum creatinine assessment which is extensively used in other countries and can be used frequently for the better management of the Renal diseases.
Keywords: Microalbuminuria, Creatinine, hypertensive and renal diseases.
