The study was done to determine the incidence of diabetic nephropathy and hypertensive nephrosclerosis in the Philippines during the year 2010 and to find out which groups are more susceptible to the diseases. It is hypothesized that gender, age group, and regional location are related to a persons proclivity to acquire the diseases. The data was obtained from the National Kidney and Transplant Institutes Renal Disease Control Program office and was analyzed using odds ratio and chi-square test using the Microsoft Excel add-in PHSTAT2. Results showed that the incidence for diabetic nephropathy was higher than the incidence for Hypertensive nephropathy for both 2010 and 2011. Diabetic nephropathy incidence grew 7.23% from 4.29 cases per 100.000 to 4.6 cases per 100.000. Hypertensive nephropathy incidence showed an increase of 14.47% from 2.28 to 2.61 cases per 100,000. Odds ratio determined that males are more susceptible to the both diseases than females and that there is a significant difference between the incidence of the two. The trend of incidence among age groups showed that older age groups had a higher incidence than the rest of the population for both diseases. In terms of regional distribution, it was found that NCR had the highest incidence of both diseases while ARMM showed the lowest incidence. This suggests that urbanization may play a role in the development and the increased incidence of diabetic nephropathy and hypertensive nephrosclerosis.
