Exercise and the Kidney in Diabetes
Exercise proteinuria has been known in many years. There are early descriptions of the phenomenon, but the first published reports of exercise-induced albuminuria is given by Collier in 1907, describing »functional albuminuria« in athletes . Since then many papers on this topic related to normal renal physiology have been published [2–19]. The first to describe comprehensively haemodynamic effect of exercise in diabetes was the Swedish investigator T. Karlefors. He studied exercise tests in male diabetics and looked for instance at heart rate and systolic blood pressure raises . A new era started around 1970 after the introduction of exact measurement of urinary albumin excretion rate, for instance by radioimmunoassay or other immuno-based techniques [21,22].
