Office BP Predicts Microalbuminuria

High ambulatory but normal or well-controlled office BP, a condition known as “reverse white-coat hypertension,” is an independent risk factor for microalbuminuria in patients with treated hypertension.

Mechanisms of Diabetic Nephropathy

The kidney consists of four basic tissue types: vessels, glomeruli, tubules, and interstitium. Each of these types may be influenced by different pathophysiologic mechanisms associated with diabetic nephropathy. Despite their variability, these mechanisms share common clinical outcomes including microalbuminuria, progesssion to end-stage renal disease, and increased risks of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality.
