AIMS/HYPOTHESIS: Early detection of risk of microalbuminuria could prevent early renal damage. We investigated whether urine retinol binding protein and N-acetyl-glucosaminidase could predict the risk of microalbuminuria in a large cohort of children followed from diagnosis of Type I (insulin-dependent) diabetes mellitus. METHODS: Subjects under 16 years of age within a georaphically defined region were recruited at diagnosis of Type I (insulin-dependent) diabetes mellitus. Annually, albumin...Expand abstract
