Description: The prevalence of chronic kidney disease (CKD) amidst Thai adult T2DM patients is quite high. Uncontrolled DM and long-term hyperglycemia can play a role to initiate this renal vascular complication. Glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) is a well-known valid biomarker to estimate glycemic control. High concentration of HbA1c indicates poor or sub-optimal control of DM. However, it is not clear whether HbA1c with other conventional indicators can act as a reliable determinant to predict CKD. The intention of this study was examining the association of HbA1c and other associated risk factors for developing CKD. It also attempted to evaluate different methods to report CKD. A diabetic registry was used to collect 4042 participants from a district hospital in the Northeast of Thailand. CKD was reported by using estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR
