7) The preferred method for screening for microalbuminuria is to measure the ACR in a random spot urine sample.
The time to onset of microalbuminuria was increased by a significant 23% with olmesartan, compared with placebo, in the Randomized Olmesartan and Diabetes Microalbuminuria Prevention (ROADMAP) trial.
In the DCCT, intensive glycaemic control (close to the normal range) in T1DM patients reduced the occurrence of microalbuminuria by 39% (95% CI: 21 - 52%) and albuminuria by 54% (95% CI: 19 - 74%), thus concluding that intensive therapy effectively delays the onset and slows the progression of DN in patients with T1DM.
Microalbuminuria was present at diagnosis in 14% with type 2 and 0% with type 1 diabetes.
After 20 years of follow-up, 152 participants (23 percent) with microalbuminuria had died - a rate 6.
To detect the condition as early as possible testing for microalbuminuria should be included in a full annual health check-up for all diabetic patients, said doctors at the Novartis sponsored 2nd UAE Cardio Renal Continuum held at Al Noor Hospital Airport Road (ANHAR).
Moreover, acute exercise-induced microalbuminuria has been used as a provocative test for the early detection of diabetic nephropathy in patients without microalbuminuria (Felt-Ramussen, 1985; O'Brien et al, 1995).
In all patients 24 hour microalbuminuria, serum total, high density lipoprotein (HDL), low density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol and lipoprotein a, triglyceride, fasting blood sugar levels were obtained.
Several longitudinal studies have shown that microalbuminuria has an 80% positive prediction rate of development of DN in type 1 diabetics (Parving, Osterby & Ritz 2000).
Serum Uric acid and microalbuminuria by albumin to creatinine ratio (ACR) in random urine sample was measured at the time of inclusion of patients.
