About the Authors
  • Microalbuminuria, the abnormal urinary excretion of albumin, is recognised 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, the methodology of laboratory assessment and a discussion of the non-specific nature of microalbuminuria in less well-recognised clinical situations. This is the first book to deal in detail with the treatment of microalbuminuria in diabetic and non-diabetic subjects. It will provide an essential source of reference and a guide to clinical practice for diabetologists, endocrinologists, cardiologists, renal physicians and clinical biochemists.

    • First volume to look at microalbuminuria in both diabetic and non-diabetic contexts
    • Deals with laboratory investigation and clinical management
    • Explores the epidemiology of microalbuminuria and its asscociation with renal and cardiovascular disease

    'This textbook will be essential reading for doctors interested in microalbuminuria and its significance in diabetes and hypertension, and as a non-specific marker of disease. All topics are comprehensively covered and include extensive up to date references. Every effort has been made to ensure that this book is as contemporary as possible, with numerous notes being added during the proof-reading. In summary, this is an informative, well-written book that will be of great interest to diabetetologists.' John New, Endocrinologist
