      Microalbuminuria is a marker for diabetic nephropathy. It also signifies cardiovascular disease, as well as nephropathy, in type 2 diabetes (DM2). Microalbuminuria may precede DM2, occurring with the insulin resistance syndrome and its components, including obesity and hypertension. Other indicators of cardiovascular risk, such as markers of inflammation, are associated with microalbuminuria in populations of patients with and without diabetes. With the rising prevalence of DM2 in minority youth, especially in Native Americans, a marker for future disease risk would allow earlier prevention strategies to be tested. Before microalbuminuria can be used in a prevention strategy, more needs to be known about the mechanism(s) of the association between elevated excretion, its relationship to glucose intolerance, and its relative contribution to cardiovascular and renal disease. These questions are especially applicable as we begin to observe the long-term complications of diabetes in youth.

                  MICROALBUMINURIA IS A MARKER for diabetic nephropathy and cardiovascular disease in patients with type 1 (DM1) and type 2 (DM2) diabetes mellitus ( 12, 81 - 83, 91, 119 ). Microalbuminuria refers to the excretion of albumin in the urine at a rate that exceeds normal limits but is less than the detection level for traditional dipstick methods ( 4 ). Microalbuminuria has been utilized as a screening test for the presence of diabetes-related kidney disease in patients with DM1. Results are expressed as milligrams per 24-h urine specimen, micrograms per minute in a timed urine specimen, or as micrograms per milligram creatinine in a random spot urine test ( 4 ). Detection of microalbuminuria is important from a clinical standpoint because, once detected, it is an indication for the initiation of anti-angiotensin II therapy with the purpose of preventing or delaying the advance of progressive diabetic nephropathy ( 4, 10, 70, 79, 89, 90 ). Although the positive predictive value of microalbuminuria for progressive diabetic nephropathy is less than once thought, it remains a standard clinical test with important ramifications for patient management ( 12 ).

However, issues involving the time course of the process are blurred by the insidious onset of DM2. In patients with DM2, it has become evident that microalbuminuria is also a predictor of cardiovascular death ( 81 ). However, the presence of microalbuminuria in DM2 may be more reflective of generalized vascular disease than diabetic glomerulopathy.

The past 10 years have seen a troubling increase in the prevalence of DM2 in youth ( 29, 34, 71, 102, 114 ). This epidemic of DM2 in youth has preferentially affected ethnic minorities ( 29, 71 ). The long-term implications for micro- and macrovascular disease and quality of life are enormous. In an effort to understand the development of DM2 in youth, high-risk populations are being closely monitored with emphasis on early markers of disease. The goal is the development of treatment strategies that will prevent or change the natural history of diabetes and its complications.

The goal of this review is to summarize the evidence supporting an association of microalbuminuria with conditions that may occur before the development of DM2 in high-risk populations, including obesity, the insulin resistance syndrome, and impaired glucose tolerance. First Nation (Canadian North American Indians) and American Indians in North America are highlighted as an example of a high-risk population, but similar data exist for other ethnic groups at high-risk for DM2, including African Americans and Hispanics ( 36 ). It is clear that cardiovascular risk and disease begin before the diagnosis of DM2 in patients with insulin resistance and can be accelerated in young adults. The challenge is to learn more about the temporal pattern of disease markers that reflect disease evolution and why they occur, choose appropriate strategies for intervention, and conduct clinical trials that will prevent both cardiovascular and renal disease in patients at risk.

Microalbuminuria is not usually a presenting finding at the onset of DM1. After a 5- to 10-yr duration of diabetes, susceptible patients develop intermittent microalbuminuria before having persistent microalbuminuria ( 84 ). Improved blood glucose control ( 23a, 110, 117a ), antihypertensive therapy, and anti-angiotensin II therapy ( 10, 27a, 67, 70, 74, 77, 80a, 90, 120 ) have been shown to delay or prevent the progression of microalbuminuria and the development of nephropathy. In DM1, microalbuminuria is a strong risk factor for the development of nephropathy. The development of microalbuminuria is associated with established extracellular matrix expansion in the glomerular and tubulointerstitial compartments of the kidney ( 69 ). The natural history results in progressive glomerulosclerosis, increasing proteinuria, and chronic renal failure. The long period between the onset of microalbuminuria and chronic renal failure (in years) offers a substantial window for therapeutic intervention ( 117 ).

( 94 ) reported data from the Joslin Clinic on 386 patients with DM1 who were followed for 8 yr ( Table 1 ). Regression was defined as a 50% decrease in albumin excretion from one 2-yr study period to the next 2-yr study period and occurred in 58% of the patients ( 94 ). Interestingly, regression was not associated with angiontensin-converting enzyme inhibitor use but was associated with glycosylated hemoglobin levels of

1 [2 m' d. H% X3 W' S$ M" S" W. n! PBecause of the insidious onset of DM2, the true duration of the disease is often not known. It has been reported that a 6 yr of diabetes may have existed before diagnosis ( 46 ). Because of the variable duration of disease at diagnosis, subjects often present with microalbuminuria at that point. However, diabetic nephropathy in DM2 is similar to nephropathy in DM1 with similar pathology, response to interventions of glucose control and anti-angiotensin II therapy, and progression to chronic renal failure ( 12, 99 ). DM2 with nephropathy involves a similar proportion of patients, compared with DM1 ( 49 ). At present, there is not a similar long-term study evaluating regression in DM2 as described above for DM1. However, data taken from recent intervention studies using angiotensin II receptor antagonists demonstrate some regression. Lewis et al. ( 70 ) reported on the use of irbesartan in patients with DM2 and nephropathy. A 33% decrease in proteinuria was seen over 2.6 yr, whereas the placebo group decreased 10%. A similar study using losartan in DM2 and nephropathy found a reduction of 35%, whereas the placebo group had a rise in proteinuria ( 10 ). Parving et al. ( 90 ) reported on the use of irbesartan in a population of hypertensive patients with DM2 and microalbuminuria and found that microalbuminuria was decreased by 38% over 2 yr with only a change of 2% in the controls. Attempts at prevention of nephropathy in DM2 have focused on the prevention of microalbuminuria, the earliest clinical hallmark of nephropathy, or its progression to macroalbuminuria ( 89, 99 ). In general, the evolution of nephropathy in DM2 is similar to what is found with DM1.8 O. n8 C" k; `1 l$ P2 q

MICROALBUMINURIA IS ASSOCIATED WITH CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE" v0 u. I" T9 v% m8 J, Q1 J. Z
/ `$ N" R+ Z+ O9 f
Microalbuminuria has been associated with increased cardiovascular mortality in populations of both diabetic and nondiabetic subjects ( 43, 57, 81, 125 ). In fact, microalbuminuria has been used as a marker of cardiovascular disease, along with other risk factors found in the insulin resistance syndrome. Data from the Framingham Offspring Study suggest that microalbuminuria is more likely to be present with additional cardiovascular risk factors ( 78 ). The premise is that microalbuminuria is a marker of generalized endothelial dysfunction. Microalbuminuria has been linked to increased transcapillary albumin leakage and increased von Willebrand factor and other markers of endothelial dysfunction ( 59, 106 ). In survivors of myocardial infarction, both albuminuria and the transvascular escape rate of albumin are increased ( 58 ). Albuminuria has also been shown to predict the severity of atherosclerosis ( 86, 116 ). Others have suggested that the elevated insulin levels that occur with insulin resistance increase glomerular hemodynamic pressures that increase albumin excretion ( 16, 115 ). The relative contribution of underlying vascular disease vs. diabetic nephropathy toward microalbuminuria is not clear. However, a large body of evidence suggests that microalbuminuria is an indicator of both micro- and macrovascular disease.8 X3 L& T1 W0 B9 [1 R. W. J

Cross-sectional studies have clearly demonstrated the presence of microalbuminuria with other markers of the insulin resistance syndrome. Using clamp studies, hypertension alone was found to associate with a decrease in glucose disposal by 27% ( 37 ). However, the combination of microalbuminuria and hypertension was associated with the greatest decrease in glucose disposal. The highest triglycerides and the lowest HDL-C levels, additional markers of the insulin resistance syndrome, were associated with patients having hypertension and microalbuminuria. In the Botnia Study, 84% of those with DM2 had elements of the insulin resistance syndrome (obesity, hypertension, dyslipidemia, or microalbuminuria) ( 55 ). If present, the insulin resistance syndrome increased the risk for coronary artery disease and stroke threefold. However, microalbuminuria was the strongest risk for cardiovascular death. Of those with normal glucose tolerance, 10% had microalbuminuria, suggesting the potential for microalbuminuria as a marker for the risk of coronary artery disease in nondiabetic individuals. This is such an important association that the World Health Organization has included microalbuminuria in its definition of the metabolic syndrome ( 2 ).

MICROALBUMINURIA AS A RISK FACTOR IN NONDIABETIC PEOPLE

A number of studies have demonstrated that microalbuminuria occurs in individuals without diabetes. In the Mexico City Diabetes Study, nondiabetic people with microalbuminuria were more likely to have a family history of diabetes ( 42 ). Similar findings were reported by in the Botnia study, where first-degree relatives of patients with DM2 demonstrated insulin resistance in association with elevated albumin excretion rates ( 32 ). In the Insulin Resistance Atherosclerosis Study, patients with microalbuminuria were more insulin resistant and had higher fasting insulin concentrations compared with patients without microalbuminuria ( 87 ). However, the relationship was also partially dependent on blood pressure and obesity. Although the bulk of the data supports microalbuminuria as being a component of the insulin resistance syndrome, not all results support this contention ( 56 ). The Hoorn Study evaluated a homogenous Caucasian population and found that microalbuminuria was associated with hypertension, DM2, and waist-hip ratio. It did not, however, associate with other components of the insulin resistance syndrome. This raises the alternative view that microalbuminuria is associated with hypertension but not the insulin resistance syndrome. In Data from an Epidemiological Study on the Insulin Resistance Syndrome findings, the cardiovascular events were greater in subjects with microalbuminuria ( 45 ). However, in contrast to men, women did not show the same increased cardiovascular risk with the addition of microalbuminuria. A similar trend was seen in the Inter-Tribal Heart Project, where nondiabetic Native Americans with microalbuminuria often had the insulin resistance syndrome ( 52 ). Thus hormonal differences may play a role in the expression of the increased cardiovascular risk in patients with insulin resistance and microalbuminuria. Although this may suggest that estrogen may have some protective effect, when women are administered estrogen in the preor postmenopausal setting, it is associated with increases in microalbuminuria in a dose- and time-dependent fashion ( 85 ). In addition, in women high levels of microalbuminuria, when present, are still predictive of cardiovascular disease, as demonstrated in an epidemiological study from The Netherlands in which women with the highest quintile of microalbuminuria were at increased risk of cardiovascular death ( 101 ).

Such terms as the "ticking clock" or the "common soil" hypothesis have been used to suggest that the time course for the development of cardiovascular disease begins before the onset of clinical diabetes ( 44, 107 ). The common factors for the development of cardiovascular disease may represent genetic or environmental factors that are present before the clinical manifestations of disease. Indeed, in the Nurses' Health Study, the risk for cardiovascular disease was found to be elevated at least 15 yr before the diagnosis of diabetes ( 53 ). Whether the common factors for onset of microalbuminuria and diabetes are preventable is of great interest for future therapy. The Heart Outcomes and Prevention Evaluation study provided powerful data along these lines ( 73 ). The use of the ACE inhibitor ramipril reduced the progression of albuminuria, whether this was new albuminuria or the progression of microalbuminuria to macroalbuminuria. This study also demonstrated that ramipril was effective in decreasing cardiovascular death in patients with known heart disease or DM2 patients without established heart disease. The benefits of ramipril were greatest on preventing cardiovascular events in patients with DM2 and in nondiabetic patients with albuminuria.

Over the past 20 years, the prevalence of DM2 has increased 18% in the United States ( 3 ). Not only is DM2 more prevalent, but it often begins at a younger age ( 71, 102 ). This has serious consequences for long-term health as these patients are also at increased risk for cardiovascular disease, end-stage renal disease, blindness, amputation, and the associated personal and economic losses at earlier ages. The younger onset of patients with DM2 suggests that those patients will live with complications for a larger percentage of their lifetime.0 F6 @/ c) ~7 i- S5 O" R6 v

Prevalence rates for diagnosed DM2 in children have been estimated at between 2 and 50/1,000, depending on the population studied, whereas that for the general adult population is 30/1,000 ( 29 ). Those children and young adults with the highest prevalence rates of DM2 are from racial and ethnic minorities, including African Americans, Hispanics, and Native Americans ( 29, 71 ). The increased prevalence of DM2 in children has been attributed to increasing obesity, a sedentary lifestyle, and increased intrauterine exposure to a diabetic environment ( 8, 29, 34, 71, 114 ). The degree of obesity is significant, as most published studies have found that affected children with DM2 have a mean body mass index (BMI) exceeding the 95th percentile for age ( 29, 71 ). Because of the increased prevalence of DM2, DM1 may no longer represent the most common form of diabetes in youth, as up to 50% of new cases of diabetes in youth are DM2 in some populations ( 71 ).& J) X- t; g8 x

Recent Indian Health System data indicate the prevalence rate has risen to 5.4/1,000 for ages 15-19 yr, an increase of 68% over a decade ( 1, 7 ). Population-based studies demonstrate that DM2 occurs in African Americans at a rate of 7.2/1,000, in contrast to 4.1/1,000 for all U.S. adolescents aged 12-19 yr ( 29 ). Without a plateau in the increasing prevalence, DM2 will be expected to increase into the future.

However, the Strong Heart Study recently revealed the prevalence of microalbuminuria in Arizona, Oklahoma, and Dakota Indians to be 28.3, 15.2, and 13.8%, respectively ( 100 ). However, these subjects were all adults and may not represent the prevalence of microalbuminuria in young American Indians.4 o: f" o1 I% K2 ~$ K

Fagot-Campagna et al. ( 28 ) reported on the prevalence of cardiovascular risk factors, including microalbuminuria, in Pima children age 5-19 yr. The group included 4,092 10- to 19-yr-old patients with normal glucose tolerance. At baseline, 6% had microalbuminuria, whereas 8% with impaired glucose tolerance had microalbuminuria. After more than 5 yr, 33% of the entire cohort had developed microalbuminuria. This is in contrast to the rates of microalbuminuria in other healthy ethnic groups. For African Americans, 7.7% of men and 10.5% of women aged 6-19 yr have microalbuminuria ( 60 ). Non-Hispanic whites (5.7/9.7, men/women) and Hispanics (5.4/9.5, men/women) have lower rates of microalbuminuria. After age 19, in all ethnic groups the rate of microalbuminuria falls in the third decade to rates roughly one-half those seen at ages 6-19 yr. If microalbuminuria serves as a marker of future cardiovascular and renal disease, efforts to define its prevalence in high-risk populations are an essential first step to a prevention strategy.. p: L1 X# v# I( E; N; A# |

ROLE OF PUBERTY IN DEVELOPMENT OF MICROALBUMINURIA

Puberty is normally associated with complex changes in renal hemodynamics, somatic growth, and changes in sex hormones that may have important interactions with hyperglycemia and insulin resistance ( 68 ). These changes may, in turn, affect microalbuminuria during puberty. It is rare to develop microalbuminuria before puberty in DM1. In fact, there has been a suggestion that diabetic nephropathy does not occur before puberty ( 24, 65 ). Although patients may not have microalbuminuria, histological changes indicative of diabetic nephropathy occur in association with duration of diabetes, not pubertal stage ( 25 ). However, with DM2, pathological insulin resistance may interact with developmental changes to accelerate the onset of microalbuminuria.

Tanner staging characterizes pubertal development, according to physical findings utilizing examination of pubic hair and genitalia in boys and pubic hair, breast size, and menarche in girls ( 75, 76 ). Tanner stages range from stages 1 (preadolescent) to 5 (fully mature). Several studies have demonstrated that insulin sensitivity decreases early in puberty in nondiabetic children as well as patients with diabetes, beginning between Tanner stages 1 and 2 and decreasing throughout puberty. Insulin sensitivity improves to normal after linear growth is complete in adults. Body fat also increases in early puberty, but BMI does not change with Tanner stage in adolescents.

Several studies have implicated a relationship between insulin sensitivity and the growth hormone-IGF-1 axis, suggesting increased tissue growth hormone effect as the cause ( 9, 17 ). One study found a significant association among IGF-1, renal hypertrophy, and microalbuminuria ( 19 ). However, others did not confirm this relationship ( 104 ). To date, studies evaluating microalbuminuria during puberty have been cross sectional. Additional prospective studies are needed to more closely characterize the changes that occur with puberty and the development of microalbuminuria.

3 m3 X5 }3 W& Z8 e% H: pThe use of the highly-sensitive C-reactive protein (CRP) assay, a sensitive marker of inflammation, has been shown in a number of studies to predict the risk of cardiovascular disease events ( 15, 51, 64, 66, 93, 96 - 98, 112, 113, 128 ). An active role for elevated CRP levels in the pathophysiology of vascular disease has been suggested but not definitively proven ( 23, 92, 122, 129 ). Because microalbuminuria, CRP, and other markers of inflammation have been shown to be associated with cardiovascular disease, the question arises as to whether the inflammatory process causes the microalbuminuria.; p7 P5 ^7 _2 z  G" Y

A large cross-sectional study has demonstrated an association between microalbuminuria and CRP ( 31 ). Festa et al. ( 31 ) reported on 1,281 subjects from the Insulin Resistance Atherosclerosis Study. The study population contained patients with and without DM2. There was a positive association between microalbuminuria and elevated CRP and fibrinogen. The association was similar across gender and ethnic groups. The authors suggest that the association may arise from three possibilities: the independent development of atherosclerosis and microalbuminuria, the direct or indirect effect of cytokines on the glomerulus, or the presence of both from a common preexisting condition. However, a retrospective analysis of the Risk Factors in Impaired Glucose Tolerance for Atherosclerosis and Diabetes study did not demonstrate an association between microalbuminuria and CRP levels in a population at high risk for DM2 ( 111 ).5 W+ |9 ^; w/ ~5 E6 e# i

CRP was also associated with hyperfiltration (defined by an elevated creatinine clearance and seen before a decrease in creatinine clearance in patients with diabetic nephropathy), although this relationship was primarily related to BMI and has been described previously ( 80, 118 ). These data raise the point that inflammatory processes may negatively impact renal function, as well as cardiovascular end points. This may be especially true in individuals who progress from obesity to prediabetes to diabetes. No prospective data exist in patients with diabetes to provide insight into this question.

BMI and hemoglobin A1C have also been associated with inflammatory markers ( 105 ). Acute hyperglycemia has been shown to increase IL-6, TNF-, and IL-18 ( 27 ). Low levels of adiponectin that occur with obesity are associated with increased IL-6 and CRP plasma levels ( 26 ). Visceral obesity is also associated with increased free fatty acid release into the portal vein ( 33 ). This leads to increased hepatic glucose output with resultant hyperglycemia and decreased hepatic insulin extraction with resultant hyperinsulinemia ( 30, 109 ). Glowinska et al. ( 35 ) reported that traditional risk factors for cardiovascular disease, such as hypertension and dyslipidemia, are also associated with nontraditional risk factors, such as decreased fibrinolytic activity and homocysteinemia, and lipoprotein (a) levels in obese, diabetic adolescents.1 G) r" Z( D* W

The increase in oxidative stress from obesity was further supported in a community-based cohort in the Framingham Heart Study ( 61 ). Thiazolidinediones increase adiponectin levels ( 72, 124 ). Salicylates may improve fat-induced insulin resistance ( 63 ). Exercise is associated with decreased CRP levels ( 54 ). These are in addition to lifestyle changes to lose weight.

Although there are clear recommendations for the measurement of microalbumin excretion in the urine, the test is not universally employed ( 48 ). Factors contributing to this include lack of availability, confusion with units of measure, increased turnaround time for the assay, and the sense by clinicians that such measurements are not needed provided patients are placed on an angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor or angiotensin II blocker. The latter point is incorrect for several reasons. Despite therapy with one of the renoprotective agents, there is now evidence that simultaneous use of both agents may further decrease microalbuminuria, and prospective testing needs to be performed to titrate the medications ( 103 ). The above review has also indicated that microalbuminuria is a marker of vascular disease and can be used to support further therapy directed at this complication. For the stated reasons, the recommendations for microalbuminuria testing need to be emphasized and the obstructions to its use removed.# P. \: u7 A3 w, g$ E

, p% H2 k/ ~% y  hThere is generally a long lag time between the initiation of atherogenesis and the first cardiac event, which provides an opportunity to intervene with preventive therapy in insulin resistance. However, before a prevention treatment can be devised and tested, more needs to be known about the temporal development of DM2, vascular disease, and renal disease. Evidence already exists of the terrible toll of diabetes and its complications occurring earlier in youth who develop diabetes. Dean and Flett ( 22 ) reported a high mortality rate of 9% after 15 yr of diabetes in First Nation populations in Manitoba and Ontario, Canada. These patients were diagnosed with DM2 before 18 yr of age and were only in their third decade of life when they died.

While microalbuminuria is also a marker of early diabetic nephropathy and may not always predict progression, it appears to also predict significant cardiovascular disease. Further understanding of these issues is critical to prevent mortality from cardiovascular and renal disease in diabetes, especially in young adults with DM2.

Fig. 1. Model for the development of cardiovascular and renal disease in patients with a variety of disorders surrounding insulin resistance and glucose intolerance. It should be noted that microalbuminuria has been found as a marker of these conditions, evident before diabetes, and may serve as a marker of disease activity.
