OBJECTIVE To evaluate the significance of microalbuminuria in adolescents with IDDM and to study the relative importance of blood pressure (BP), metabolic control, and albumin excretion rate (AER) on progression of microalbuminuria. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS A cohort of 155/156 children and adolescents followed from onset up to 18.3 years of IDDM participated. In a previous follow-up in July 1991 (up to 15 years of duration), 17 patients had developed persistent microalbuminuria (> or = 20… CONTINUE READING
