Microalbuminuria has been shown to be a risk factor for adverse renal and cardiovascular outcomes in patients with diabetes mellitus. This risk appears to increase with higher levels of albuminuria. There is also evidence that reducing the level of albuminuria improves these outcomes. This review focuses on the most recent advances in this area and reviews literature over the past year on this topic.
