Not a problem: I am going to assume you were told that this value is low, and that the units are micrograms of creatinine compared with milligrams of Albumin in a spot urine. This pathologist believes that setting a lower limit on this ratio is silly, as it's a concern only if high. Treat the person, not the numbers. I would not be at all concerned.

A 37-year-old female asked:

What does"unable to calculate albumin/creatinine ratio as the concentration of microalbin is less than the lower limit of the analytical range" mean?

UA test result: The long-worded result you describe indicates that there is no "microalbumin" in the urine tested. That is good news. The presence of protein in the urine is an ominous finding.
