To study how the risk of cardiovascular disease changes with increasing levels of urinary albumin excretion (UAE), we prospectively studied a random sample of 120 49-year-old men with a wide range of blood pressures. Based on diastolic blood pressure (DBP), the subjects were divided into normotensives (DBP < 90 mm Hg; n = 21), borderline hypertensives (DBP… CONTINUE READING
