Objective: The aim was to study the ambulatory blood pressure as a predictor of diabetic nephropathy (DN). Materials and Methods: A total of 73 patients with DN at Stage III were selected as DN group and 73 cases with 5-10 years of diabetes were as diabetes group. The results of blood routine, biochemical indexes, dynamic blood pressure and the diversity index, which as the predictors of DN, analyzed by multivariate logistic regression analysis and compared between two groups. Results: Body mass index, the dose of oral glucose (GLU)-lowering drugs, the levels of fasting plasma GLU, HbA1c, total cholesterol, triglyceride, high-density lipoprotein-cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein-cholesterol, and high-sensitivity C-reactive protein index had no statistically significant difference in two groups in the course of the disease. There were significant differences in peripheral blood leukocyte count, platelet count, erythrocyte sedimentation rate, uric acid, estimated glomerular filtration rate, average daytime systolic blood pressure (SBP), average nighttime SBP, average daytime diastolic blood pressure (DBP), average night DBP, 24 h SBP variability, daytime SBP variability and nighttime SBP variability between the two groups. In univariate analysis, we found that platelet count (P = 0.03), average night DBP (P = 0.01), nighttime SBP variability (P < 0.001) were the independent predictor of DN. Conclusion: Platelet count, average diastolic pressure and SBP at night are the independent predictors of DN.
