|albumin creatinine ratio in urine indicates||1.83||0.2||4838||25|
A urine microalbumin test can be performed to detect small amounts of albumin in the urine that may not be detected on dipstick testing. If the kidney is diseased, proteins may be detected on a dipstick test, even if blood protein levels are normal. For a random urine sample, normal values are 0 to 14 mg/dL.What does a high albumin level mean?
If your test shows high levels of urine albumin, or a rise in urine albumin, it could mean you have kidney damage or disease. If you have diabetes, one possible cause of an increased urine albumin is kidney disease (diabetic nephropathy). How is this test done? This test requires a urine sample.How to calculate microalbumin creatinine ratio?
To convert microalbum and urine creatinine to the useful ratio first make sure both values are expressed as mg/L or mg/ml. Divide the microalbumin concentration by the creatinine concentration. Multiply the resulting ratio by 1,000 to get mg albumin over grams creatinine.What is the normal range for microalbumin creatinine ratio?
Your doctor can help you understand what they mean. Normal: less than 30 micrograms (mcg) per milligram (mg) of creatinine Clinical albuminuria: More than 300 mcg/mg creatinine If there is albumin in your pee, the amount likely varies during the day. That makes it a little harder to get an accurate measure.
