  • Clinical Significance

Albumin is one of the major plasma proteins and is usually present in very low concentrations in urine. Damage to the glomerular basement membrane can alter its permeability meaning albumin and other proteins usually reabsorbed and recirculated in the blood enter the urine. Sustained elevations of urinary albumin concentrations are called microalbuminuria 1.

Microalbuminuria is strongly associated with poor glycaemic control, hypertension and other diabetic complications including ischaemic heart disease, diabetic retinopathy and neuropathy. Microalbumin is an early biomarker of diabetic nephropathy, the most common complication of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) 2. Microalbuminuria is an independent predictor of progressive renal disease and cardiovascular mortality. Due to the increasing prevalence of obesity, type 2 diabetes and metabolic syndrome in children, screening for microalbuminuria seems highly relevant in the paediatric population to detect and prevent cardiovascular disease 3.
