An observational, descriptive and serial cases study, to determine the presence of microalbuminuria in 80 patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus, classified in the doctor's office No. 42 of “José Martí Pérez” Teaching Polyclinic was carried out in Santiago de Cuba, from October, 2016 to the same month in 2017. In the series, the 60-64 age group was the one with higher epidemiological connotation, related to the microalbuminuria of high range (86.7%). The course time of the diabetes was closely linked with the detection of high microalbuminuria; also, the different stages of the chronic renal disease bore no relation with the course time of the illness, that is to say, the stage 1 was in correspondence with the beginning of the diabetes and the stages 4 and 5 with the patients with more than 10 years of clinical course. The importance of studying the microalbuminuria was evidenced in patients with few years of the disease course.

Key words: microalbuminuria, type 2 diabetes mellitus, doctor’s office, primary health care.
