Abstract

Overt albuminuria (urinary albumin-creatinine ratio [ACR] > 300 mg/g) is an established risk factor for progression of nephropathy and total mortality. However, whether a reduction in ACR translates into a reduction in mortality and/or cardiovascular (CV) events among insulin-treated patients with type 2 diabetes (T2D) in routine practice is currently not known.
