Value of ambulatory arterial stiffness index and 24-h pulse pressure to predict progression of albuminuria in elderly people with diabetes mellitus.


BACKGROUND Ambulatory 24-h pulse pressure predicts progression of albuminuria in people with diabetes mellitus. It is not known whether the ambulatory arterial stiffness index (AASI) may add to that prediction. METHODS We compared the multivariate-adjusted association of AASI and 24-h pulse pressure with progression of urine albumin excretion during… (More)
