  1. NCAD patients without coronary artery disease. CAD patients with coronary artery disease. UAlb/Ucre was the ratio between urinary albumin concentration and urinary creatinine concentrations. Data are expressed as mean ± SD for all continuous and parametric variables. UAlb/Ucre (mg/g) data were expressed as median and 95% confidence interval
