Categorical distribution of UACR both before and after IVB

Variable (mg/dL) DME (n = 30) No DME (n = 23) p-value*
Pre-IVB 0.844
A1 (< 30 mg/g, normal) 9 (30) 8 (35)
A2 (≥ 30 and ≤ 300 mg/g) 11 (37) 9 (39)
A3 (> 300 mg/g) 10 (33) 6 (26)
Post-IVB 0.796
A1 (< 30 mg/g, normal) 8 (27) 8 (35)
A2 (≥ 30 and ≤ 300 mg/g) 14 (46) 9 (39)
A3 (> 300 mg/g) 8 (27) 6 (26)
Categorical change 0.368
Improved change 4 (13) 1 (4)
No change in category 23 (77) 21 (82)
Aggravated change 3 (10) 1 (4)

Values are presented as number (%).

UACR = urinary albumin-to-creatinine ratio; IVB = intravitreal bevacizumab injection; DME = diabetic macular edema.

Chi-square test;

improved changes were from A3 to A1 or A2 and from A2 to A1, while aggravated changes were from A1 to A2 or A3 and from A2 to A3.
