Microalbuminuria: Hard to give a specific answer without knowing more history, but an elevated urine microalbumin/creatinine ratio could indicate early damage to kidneys (from diabetes for instance) without yet interfering with the filtration capacity of the kidneys which could be picked up on a blood test. Would talk to your doctor about these results for more specific advice. Best of luck!

High microablumin: Your microalbumin/creatinine being high signifies that you have proteinuria. See a nephrologist to have a 24 hour urine collection for creatinine clearance and protein to see how much protein you have in your urine for 24 hours and to see what your kidney function is. Blood work will be needed as well to diagnose the cause of your proteinuria. Go to a nephrologist to answer your question.
