Abstract

OBJECTIVE: It is known that diabetes may cause to hypercoagulability. The pathogenetic mechanism of coagulation activation is not completely clear and the origin is multifactorial. While chronic hyperglycemia is considered to be the main underlying pathology, there are various comments on the association between glycemic control and haemostatic disorders. In this study, we have aimed to compare patients with diabetic nephropathy and patients with idiopathic nephrotic syndrome with respect to haemostatic differences.
