Background and objective: Microalbuminuria (MA) has implications on the development of CHD and it is emerging as a new risk factor of this disease. The aim of the present study was to assess the prevalence of microalbuminuria in non-diabetic and non-hypertensive subjects suffering from acute myocardial infarction, short term outcome and its prognostic importance as indicator of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. To evaluate the relationship between Microalbuminuria and Acute Myocardial Infarction in Non-diabetic and non- hypertensive patients admitted in CCU Cardiology Department LUMHS Hyderabad.
Material and methods: A cross-sectional and hospital based study. 126 consecutivenon diabetic non hypertensive patients of acute myocardial infarction were included in this study. Microalbuminuria was determined by immunoturbedimeteric method. Serum glucose and urea were measured by enzymatic method. Serum creatinine was measured by kinetic colorimetric method.
Results: A significant Microalbuminuria was found in patients of AMI who were non diabetic and non-hypertensive. The mortality and morbidity in short term outcome was also significantly increased in patients having MA, indicating the significance of Microalbuminuria as powerful prognostic biomarker.
Conclusion: Microalbuminuria may have an association with acute myocardial infarction in absence of traditional risk factors like Diabetes and Hypertension.
