To describe the development in blood pressure (BP) in relation to urinary albumin excretion (UAE) more exactly, 44 initially normoalbuminuric type I diabetic patients and 21 healthy individuals were included in a 3.1-year follow-up study by using ambulatory BP (AMBP) monitoring. Six patients developed microalbuminuria according to accepted criteria (progressors; UAE at follow-up was > 20 micrograms/min). Initial UAE was higher in this group (9.0 x/divided by 1.4 micrograms/min) compared with… CONTINUE READING
