I read the recent publication by Chowta et al. with a great interest. Chowta et al. reached the conclusion that “there is no effect of BMI and sex on the prevalence of microalbuminuria”. Indeed, the correlation between BMI and microalbuminuria is widely discussed. In a recent publication by Sibal et al., BMI is a good predictor for macrovascular complication of DM but not for microalbuminuria. However, the strong correlation between BMI and microalbuminuria was reported in another study among patients with hypertension. The correlation between microalbuminuria and BMI is still a myth that needs further complete assessment.
