Objective: To study the assessment value of serum 25-hydroxy-vitamin D content detection for patients with diabetic nephropathy. Methods: Healthy subjects, patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus and patients with diabetic nephropathy were selected for study and enrolled in control group, diabetes group and diabetic nephropathy group respectively, and contents of 25-hydroxy-vitamin D, RAS molecules and chemokines in serum as well as contents of podocyte injury molecules in urine were detected.

Conclusion: Serum 25-hydroxy-vitamin D content significantly decreases in patients with diabetic nephropathy, and it can also assess the activity of RAS system, the degree of inflammatory response and the degree of podocyte injury.
