Seventeen of 75 diabetic children without nephropathy had urinary calcium excretion of more than 4 mg/kg/day. Neither diurnal variation in calciuria, nor correlations between calcium excretion and glucose excretion as well as HbA1 level were observed. The findings suggest that about one quarter of diabetic children is at risk for hypercalciuria and may be for renal damage due to hyperexcretion of calcium.
