A member asked:

Why might i have a gfr reading of 78 and no albumin in my urine and normal creatinine levels in my urine? so it's unable to calculate an acr.

levels, of albumin may be a marker for kidney problems. Your GFR is well within normal range. No albumin was detected in your urine. Urine ACR is the ratio between the concentration of albumin and creatinine in the urine. Since your urine albumin concentration is "zero", the ratio can't be calculated mathematically. The results of your tests are consistent with healthy kidneys. Dr. Anne.
