Any level of urine albumin between 30 and 300 is called as micro albuminaria. Microalbuminuria
is an important clinical finding because it is not only associated with an increased risk of progression to overt proteinuria (macroalbuminuria) and renal failure
, but also cardiovascular events. In patients who progress to overt nephropathy, microalbuminuria usually precedes macroalbuminuria by an interval of 5 to 10 years.
It has been seen that lowering of BP with agents that interfere with the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system, such as ACE inhibitors or ARB is most effective for lowering urinary albumin excretion.Even if patient doesn't have,he should be given these ACE inhibitors or ARB's.
