Abstract1. Disturbances of sodium and water homoeostasis may contribute to the close association between diabetes, hypertension and proteinuria. We therefore studied the patterns of two natriuretic hormones, plasma atrial natriuretic peptide and urinary dopamine, in 165 Chinese patients with non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus controlled by diet or oral hypoglycaemic agents on two occasions over a 6-week period. Patients were divided into three groups based on the mean value of two 24 h urinary albumin excretion measurements. In group 1, 88 patients had normoalbuminuria (urinary albumin excretion less-than-or-equal-to 30 mg/day), in group 2, 48 patients had microalbuminuria (urinary albumin excretion between 30 and 300 mg/day), and in group 3, 29 patients had macroalbuminuria (urinary albumin excretion greater-than-or-equal-to 300 mg/day).
