Selective Proteinuria/ Microalbuminuria.

 

This occurs when permeability to albumin is increased, but without a marked increase in the filtration of other higher molecular weight proteins (immunoglobulins, ?2-macroglobulin). Microalbuminuria, the pathological excretion of urinary albumin at a ratio more than 30mg / per gram of urine creatinine, is widely recognized as a useful marker of the development and progression of renal disease and generalized vascular endothelial dysfunction. Historically, microalbuminuria has been thought to herald the onset of altered glomerular structure and function. 

 

Numerous clinical studies in non-diabetic populations have found an association between microalbuminuria and cardiovascular risk factors, target organ damage and the presence of cardiovascular disease. Microalbuminuria is predictive of cardiovascular mortality in both diabetic and nondiabetic populations. The presence of microalbuminuria indicates a widespread disturbance of endothelial function, resulting in an enhanced risk for the development of atherosclerosis. It may thus serve as a useful biomarker for systemic vascular disease and is a very useful and important screening technique for CVD.

 

Microalbuminuria is defined as an albumin: creatinine ratio between around 3 and 30 mg/mmol creatinine. Proteinuria is defined as protein: creatinine ratio > 45 mg/mmol creatinine.
