To investigate the prevalence and associated risk factors of microalbuminuria, and to explore the relationship between albuminuria and cardiovascular disease (CVD). Materials and Methods A nationally representative sample of 38, Chinese participants was categorized by different levels of urinary albumin‐to‐creatinine ratio (ACR ; 0 Cited by:.

Albuminuria is a known predictor of cardiovascular disease and chronic kidney disease ().The albumin/creatinine ratio (ACR) is a valid estimate of daily albumin excretion ().ACR values as low as 5 mg of albumin/g of creatinine when measuring ACR, or 6 mg/day of albumin excretion, have been shown to predict cardiovascular disease, incident hypertension, and all-cause mortality (1, 3, 4).Cited by: Albuminuria, also called proteinuria, is a condition in which albumin—a type of protein found in blood plasma—leaches into the gh very small amounts of protein in urine can be normal, high levels of albumin is one of several indicators of chronic kidney disease (CKD), a common complication of both type 1 and type 2 diabetes.
