Evaluating lab results without knowing medical history and medications is imprecise. Creatinine 1.4 may or may not indicate mild renal impairment. More precise test is estimated GFR. Trace albumin may indicate microvascular changes in glomeruli, especially if diabetic. Uric acid 7.7 is slightly elevated>>Rx= wt.loss, reduce alcohol, increase low fat dairy, reduce meat, increase complex carbs
