From: Dysglycemia but not lipids is associated with abnormal urinary albumin excretion in diabetic kidney disease: a report from the Kidney Early Evaluation Program (KEEP)

Adjusted for age, gender, race, hypertension, and current smoker Odds ratio (95% Confidence Interval)
(A) Micro-albuminuria Vs normo-albuminuria group:
