Microalbuminuria: an intergral marker of cardio-renal interrelations
Mukhin N. A., Moiseev V. S., Fomin V. V.
Microalbuminuria (MAU) remains one of the most significant markers for cardiorenal interrelations not only in metabolic disorders and cardiovascular diseases but also in general population characterized with variable combinations of RF, which to some or another degree provide endotheliocyte dysfunction (as reliably indicated by increased urinary albumin). Review presents analysis of data from several large clinical studies, which allow considering MAU an obligatory part of most population-based screening programs. Establishing the presence of MAU always determines a need for maximally complete eliminating definite RF and administrating appropriate classes of antihypertensive drugs which allow a considerable improvement of long-term prognosis in patients having MAU for different reasons.
