User avatar Hello,Micro albuminuria is an important predictor for diabetic nephropathy and also vascular diseases associated with diabetes.While an occasional test may show a positive test in response to exercise, hyperglycemia,urinary infections and fever only if it is persistent that it becomes significant.If a standard dip test shows positivity it is likely to be proteinuria indicating advanced diabetic nephropathy.
The treatment objective would be tighter diabetic control,control of BP and the use of angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors (ACEIs)and angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs)
Treatment of microaluminuria is of paramount importance to prevent end stage renal failure.
Best wishes.
