Microalbuminuria is an increase in urinary albumin not detected by conventional dipstick testing and is present in 20% of patients with non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM). Mortality in NIDDM patients with microalbuminuria is 60% at 8 years and is mainly due to cardiovascular disease. Because many deaths occur without warning symptoms, we have compared the prevalence and severity of silent myocardial ischemia in asymptomatic NIDDM patients with and without microalbuminuria. We have… CONTINUE READING
