Clinical and epidemiologic data have demonstrated that microalbuminuria (MA) may legitimately be an integrated marker of cardiovascular risk in nondiabetic hypertensive patients. The relation of augmented urinary albumin excretion rate (UAER) with the other surrogates of the atherosclerotic process, such as carotid artery intima-media thickness, large artery elasticity, and left ventricular hypertrophy gives further support to this view. Available evidence so far indicate that MA possibly… CONTINUE READING
