Prevention of diabetic nephropathy is an essential goal of treatment. Early detection of the yardstick, which is microalbuminurea, is important as the process can be reversed with optimal control. The dipstick method is unreliable. Screening is done simply by an overnight collection (10-12 hours) of all urine including the first morning sample. It is sent to the laboratory to determine the albumin excretion rate. Microalbuminurea is 20-200 *g/minute (2 out of 3 positive collections). ACE inhibitors should be used for evidence of hypertension.
