To examine the relationship between filtration fraction and systemic vasculopathy, in normoalbuminuric insulin-dependent diabetic adolescents.We calculated filtration fraction from measured glomerular filtration rate and renal plasma flow during a hypotonic saline perfusion test in 30 normotensive adolescent diabetic patients (9-19 years), with a mean duration of diabetes of 7.4 years. Blood pressure and heart rate were measured in basal conditions, during a 24-h ambulatory monitoring and during a dynamic exercise test on a cycle ergometer and peripheral vascular resistance was calculated.Filtration fraction was increased in the diabetic children compared with controls (30+/-6% vs. 22+/-4%, p
