Type 2 Youth Have More Protein in Urine Than Type 1 Youth
Aug 1, 2006 | 
Another red flag about the obesity epidemic in young people has been raised after researchers found that youth with type 2 have significantly higher rates of microalbuminuria (protein in the urine) and high blood pressure than youth with type 1. They say this is the case even though type 2 youth have lower A1Cs and a shorter diabetes duration.

Short-term treatment with vitamins C and E lowers the urinary albumin excretion rate (AER) in people with type 2 diabetes who have micro/macroalbuminuria, according to a team of Danish researchers. In the September 2001 issue of Diabetic Medicine, they suggest that further long-term, large-scale studies of this albuminuria-reducing treatment modality are needed.
