The urine albumin/creatinine ratio was measured in random urine samples in a range of diabetic subjects as a guide to urinary albumin excretion rate in diabetic patients. In 74 control subjects the 95th percentile for the albumin/creatinine ratio was 1.3. In 39 diabetic patients the random urine albumin/creatinine ratio correlated highly with the 24 hour urine albumin excretion (r = 0.9371, p less than 0.001). In 337 insulin treated diabetic subjects 55% of the female and 39% of the male values… CONTINUE READING
