Abstract

An acute overload of protein intake produces glomerular hyperfiltration (1). Brenner et al. proposed that sustained hyperfiltration can produce glomerular sclerosis (2). It has been demostrated that “microalbuminuria” is a predictor of glomerulosclerosis (3). This study was undertaken to investigate the effects of chronic hyperproteic diet on renal function and if there is any evidence of microalbuminuria present.
