Relationship between albuminuria proteinuria and cardiovascular disease

What is the relationship between albuminuria/proteinuria and cardiovascular disease?

The presence of albuminuria is also associated with a higher risk of death from cardiovascular disease.

This risk begins even when the amount of urine albumin is not enough to meet the criteria for the diagnosis of microalbuminuria.

As the amount of urine albumin increases, so does the risk for death from heart disease—the risk is higher in individuals with microalbuminuria and even higher among those with overt proteinuria.
