Overnight albumin excretion rates were measured in 940 diabetic patients, 416 with insulin dependent and 524 with non-insulin dependent diabetes, and in 106 healthy volunteers. A significantly higher number of non-insulin dependent diabetic patients had abnormal albumin excretion compared with the insulin-dependent group (X2 = 15.2, p less than 0.002). Ten per cent of non-insulin-dependent and 7 per cent of insulin-dependent diabetic patients had albumin excretion rates in the range 30-150… CONTINUE READING
