  • Albuminuria is independently associated with LV systolic and diastolic dysfunction in type 2 DM; this may explain in part the relationship of albuminuria to increased cardiovascular (CV) events in the DM population. Screening for albuminuria identifies individuals with high CV risk and possible cardiac dysfunction.
