Ambulatory blood pressure (ABP) correlates better than office blood pressure with hypertensive changes in the heart and vasculature. Using the 24-hour urinary excretions of albumin and N-acetyl-beta-D-glucosaminidase (NAG) as markers, we examined the relationship between office and ABP and target-organ changes in the kidney in 42 untreated patients with essential hypertension. Mean urinary albumin excretion was 23.2 +/- 34.3 mg/day and mean urinary NAG excretion was 45.1 +/- 22.9 nmol/hr/mg… CONTINUE READING
