Predictors of albumin excretion rate (AER) abnormalities could provide earlier indicators of diabetic nephropathy risk. Data from the Natural History Study, a prospective 5-year observation of renal structure and function in young type 1 diabetic patients, were examined for predictors of AER patterns in normoalbuminuric type 1 diabetic patients. Included were 170 patients (96 females) (aged 16.7 +/- 5.9 years, duration of diabetes 8.0 +/- 4.3 years) with normal blood pressure, normoalbuminuria (AER <20 microg/min), and eight or more follow-up visits over 5 years...
