UACR screening is the gold-standard method above dipstick testing, enabling detection of albuminuria, an early marker for CV risk and CKD progression1
Even patients with normal eGFR are at increased risk of CV events and CKD progression if UACR levels are elevated1,3
Relying on eGFR alone may cause early signs of CKD in T2D to be missed, which can be detected by complementary measurement of albuminuria via UACR tests1,2,4

CKD=chronic kidney disease; CV=cardiovascular; eGFR=estimated glomerular filtration rate; T2D=type 2 diabetes; UACR=urine albumin-to-creatinine ratio.
