Due to the unfavorable prognosis of advanced stages of diabetic nephropathy (DN), the ideal approach is to identify renal involvement as early as possible. It is recommended to measure urinary albumin excretion (UAE) annually, in random urine samples, in order to detect the stages of DN [microalbuminuria (UAE 17-174 mg/l or 30-300 mg albumin/g of(More)
