Abstract

Microalbuminuria is the earliest indicator of diabetic kidney disease and generalised vascular endothelial dysfunction. The Microalbuminuria Prevalence (MAP) Study was carried out to assess the prevalence of macroalbuminuria, microalbuminuria and normoalbuminuria in Asian hypertensive patients with type 2 diabetes on usual care. This paper presents a subanalysis of data from patients in Malaysia. In 733 analysed patients, the prevalence of macroalbuminuria and microalbuminuria was 15.7% and 39.7%, respectively. The high prevalence of diabetic nephropathy in these high-risk patients is a cause for concern, and the Malaysian Health Care system should be prepared for a pandemic of end-stage renal disease due to diabetic nephropathy.
