If this process represents lead-related hyperfiltration, the associations between lead dose and uric acid may become positive as this population ages and eventually, as in the Normative Aging Study, be stronger in those with the ALAD2 allele than in those with the ALAD1-1 genotype.

Obstructive sleep apnea is common in patients with type 2 diabetes and is also associated with glomerular hyperfiltration and proteinuria in patients with normal renal function, which raised the question of whether it might be related to chronic kidney disease progression, Dr.
