The article reports on a study by I.H. De Boer and colleagues, focusing on the long-term renal outcomes of patients with type 1 diabetes mellitus (DM) who develop new-onset microalbuminuria. The study also reflected on factors related to poor renal outcomes. It showed that in patients with type 1 diabetes and new-onset microalbuminuria, long-term renal outcomes varied.
