Following medical guidelines, both UACR and eGFR are critical for taking timely action against renal damage and CV risk1,2
ADA guidelines established a treatment target for UACR which recommends that UACR should be reduced by at least 30% in patients with CKD and T2D and a UACR level above 300mg/g1-3
Patients with T2D who have albuminuria may be suitable for additional treatment, even if their eGFR is preserved, to protect against deadly CV events and limit further kidney damage1-3
