Abstract

We have studied the correlation between urinary albumin excretion rate evaluated by a radial immunodiffusion technique and a highly sensitive radioimmunoassay in type 1 and type 2 diabetic patients with microproteinuria and overt clinical nephropathy. Several statistically significant correlations were found between urinary albumin excretion rate measured by radial immunodiffusion and by radioimmunoassay, both in patients with microproteinuria and overt nephropathy. Moreover, statistically significant correlations between urinary albumin excretion rate, albumin clearance and total urinary protein excretion rate were observed in each of the groups studied. The radial immunodiffusion procedure can therefore be considered a useful and sensitive method for the evaluation of urinary albumin excretion rate both in diabetic patients with microproteinuria and in patients with overt clinical nephropathy.
