We investigated 180 consecutive patients with congestive heart failure (CHF), of whom 83 had type 2 diabetes (T2DM) and 97 did not have diabetes as well as 223 controls without CHF, of whom 39 had T2DM and 184 did not have diabetes. Data was recorded by standardized interviews and by standardized examination protocols at our institution and were extracted from medical records. Here, we analyzed data on gender differences. Further, we examined the effect of CHF and T2DM on moderate albuminuria, i.e. on an albumin-creatinine ratio (ACR) of 30–300 mg/g. Table 1 shows baseline characteristics of our patients stratified by gender. Table 2 gives ACRs and prevalence rates of albuminuria separately for men and women. The data set presented here could be reused with similar patient cohorts for pooled analysis. Data description Table 1: Shows the baseline characteristics in men and women of our study population with regard to the presence of both CHF and T2DM [1]. Table 2: Shows ACRs and the prevalence of albuminuria in in men and women with regard to the presence of both CHF and T2DM. Dataset: Features the data of our study population including the presence of CHF and T2DM, gender, ACR and prevalence of albuminuria. The data are pseudonymized as each participant was assigned to consecutive numbers (“ID”) on the basis of date of inclusion. The variables “Diabetes_mellitus_type_2” and “congestive_heart_failure” distinguish if subjects are suffering from T2DM and/or CHF, whereas “0” encodes “no” and “1” stands for “yes”. “Sex” describes the biological sex of subjects, whereas “0” stands for “female” and “1” for “male” patients. The variable “albumine_creatinine_ratio” describes the quantity of albumin-creatinine ratio (ACR) in mg/g. Finally, the variable “moderate_albuminuria” states if subjects suffer from moderate albuminuria, which is defined as an ACR of 30–300 mg/g, and as before “0” stands for “no” and “1” for yes. Questionnaire: The questionnaire used for the standardized interview and examination of every subject.
