Answer

Current ADA guidelines recommend annual screening for nephropathy. [5] All adults with diabetes should have serum creatinine measured at least annually. In adults (and children aged 10 years or older) who have had type 1 DM for 5 or more years, annual assessment of urine albumin excretion is appropriate.
