It has been reported that albumin excretion rate may reflect not only an indication of renal disease but also a widespread vascular damage. We studied the relationship between overnight albumin excretion rate (AER) and peripheral vascular disease (PVD), using Doppler ultrasound, and its major risk factors in 80 Type 2 (non-insulin-dependent) diabetic patients. Thirty-eight of these patients had normoalbuminuria (AER < 30 micrograms/min), 22 had microalbuminuria (30-200 micrograms/min) and 20… CONTINUE READING
