Overview

Microalbuminuria, the abnormal urinary excretion of albumin, is recognized as an important independent marker of both renal and cardiovascular disease, particularly in diabetes mellitus. This volume is the only comprehensive and up-to-date review of the relevance of microalbuminuria to health and disease. It covers the pathophysiology and epidemiology of microalbuminuria and the methodology of laboratory assessment, and discusses the nonspecific nature of microalbuminuria in less well-recognized clinical situations. This is the first book to deal in detail with the treatment of microalbuminuria in both diabetic and nondiabetic subjects. This volume will be an essential source of reference and a guide to clinical practice for diabetologists, endocrinologists, cardiologists, renal physicians, and clinical biochemists.
