Prevalence and Incidence of Microalbuminuria in Non-Insulin-Dependent Diabetes: Relations to Other Vascular Lesions

  • Else Marie Damsgaard
Part of the Topics in Renal Medicine book series (TIRM, volume 6)


When sensitive methods for detecting albuminuria such as radioimmunoassay became available, it was demonstrated that even a slightly increased level of urinary albumin excretion was a predictor of a worse prognosis for non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM) patients [1]. There have been several studies on the prevalence of nephropathy and proteinuria in diabetics, whereas epidemiologic studies of microalbuminuria are few.
