The article presents a study on the association between cardiovascular (CV) risk factor and albuminuria in individuals with type 2 diabetes (T2D) and type 1 diabetes (T1D) in Belgium. The study shows that albuminuria was related to an increased risk in CV, more frequent antihypertensive treatment, smoking and longer diabetes duration. It revealed that albuminuria was related to diabetic complications and CV risk factors in individuals with T2D and T1D.
