Albuminuria and RI are the two main forms of diabetic kidney disease. The overall aims of this thesis were to explore risk factors and consequences associated with albuminuria and RI in patients with type 2 diabetes (T2D), as well as to assess the relationship between blood pressure variables, cardiovascular events and all-cause mortality. The studies were bas... more
