Abstract

Urinary creatinine concentrations were significantly associated with urinary albumin concentrations in all ethnic groups, and, with the exception of Pacific Islanders, accounted for a large proportion of the variation in urinary albumin concentrations in healthy individuals. Urinary albumin concentrations were associated with measures of obesity and short stature in Europeans and Pacific Islanders, and systolic blood pressure levels and gender in Europeans. However, measures of body morphology did not completely explain the higher urinary albumin concentrations in Maori or Pacific Islanders.
