Albuminuria: hi, how much? The amount your kidney is excreting is important.

Albumin/Cr: Serum Cr can be OK, but if kidneys are spilling protein, high chance Cr will increase over time as kidneys show signs of damage. Albumin is a blood protein that a healthy kidney should not allow to pass into the urine, except in tiny amounts. One way to detect if it is a significant amount is the urine microalbumin/URINE Cr (not serum) ratio. If 300, bad.In between = borderline.
