Background: Glomerular and tubulointerstitial damage plays a role in renal function failure in diabetic patients. While both serum and urine levels of neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (NGAL) show significantly increased levels in acute renal pathologies, the NGAL increase in active phase indicates a reversible condition in chronic cases.
