Abstract

A multicenter population-based study was undertaken from 1983 to 1985 in 12 diabetes centers in Lombardy, in order to assess the prevalence of microalbuminuria and clinical proteinuria. Out of a total population of 17,704 diabetics, 1,155 were randomly selected within four strata of duration of disease and albumin excretion rate (AER) assessment was carried out in 541 unselected subjects. Albuminuria was evaluated from an overnight urine collection using a radioimmunoassay. The overall prevalence rates were 25.8% for microalbuminuria (30≤AER
