Microalbumin Creatine Ratio
My creatine is 1.1 urea is 30. Spot microalbumin is 19. I my albumin creatine ratio is 30.79. My usg report says first grade nephropaty changes...I'?
Ask your physician: If you are a reasonably muscular man, a serum creatinine of 1.1 is normal or even a bit less than expected. The urea is a wee bit high but if you just ate a steak it's normal. Spot Albumin of 19 is perfectly normal if micrograms/ml; i don't know the units for the albumin/creatinine ratio. There's a fad in lab reporting that overidentifies healthy people as early kidney kidney cases. Do ask though. ...Read more
My creatine 1.1 urea 30. Albumin is nil urine. Acr ratio is 30.79. Spot microalbumin is 19.4. Usg first grade nephropaty changes. Is kidney failing?
Creatinine of 1.1: Your renal ultrasound (us) finding of first grade nephrophathy changes is subjective and reflects the interpretation of your us by the radiologist. Go to a nephrologist (n) for a 24 hour urine for creatinine clearance and protein and have blood taken when urine is returned. This will give you an actual reading, which is objective of your kidney function. Your lab data are not that bad. See a n. ...Read more
I scared, my gfraa is 41.95 and my gfrnaa is 34.61. My creat is 1.5 and a/g is 1.64, urine microalbumin cratininie ratioalbumin 39mg creatine 300<30 ?
I'm worried too: You're a female, I don't know if you're elderly, but this does suggest some diminished renal function. If your urinalysis is abnormal, I'd be more concerned. You're likely to be tested in a few weeks off medications, and if your labs are still abnormal, to be referred to a nephrologist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Recheck: Normal microalbumin/ creatinine ratio is less than 30 mg / g of creatinine. People with microalbumin / creatinine ratio between 30 -300 is said to have microlabuminuria. Level of 30. 70 is barely above normal. It is always recommended to check microalbumin on 2 sep occasions atleast 6 weeks apart, referably in early mornings. ...Read more
Don't treat a lab: Bun/creatinine ratio varies with hydration, diet, and kidney status; if high and the person's kidneys aren't working well, they may just be dry or shocky. You can lower your ratio simply by drinking a few glasses of water. But why? There's no point. I eat a lot of protein and mine tends to be a bit high, but that doesn't mean i'm sick. The big picture is everything. ...Read more
Of little concern: Bun/creatinine ratio is of little to no importance unless a physician is looking for an explanation for a person being in significant kidney failure. An older healthy woman is likely to have a lowish creatinine anyway and if you like to eat meat, this raises the bun. This is all harmless. Look at the person, not the numbers, and if your phyiscian isn't worried, forget it. ...Read more
Means normal kidneys: BUN (blood urea nitrogen) is a test for a number of certain chemicals in the blood. Creatinine is a specific chemical that is released from the muscles. These are filtered out by the kidneys into the urine. The ratio of 18 means 18 to 1 of BUN to creatinine ; it is normal. If the ratio is higher that means the circulation is not delivering blood fast enough to the kidneys. If the ratio lowers to 1. ...Read more
Helo drs... My urine albumin creatine ratio is 4.6 mg/mmol .Iam male 45... How significant is this... Looots of cheers?
May get follow-up: This is a way of estimating how much protein is being lost via the kidneys on a spot urine, without using a 24 hour check. This is a wee bit high. If you have diabetes, this might be a reason for a follow-up study; if there's nothing else to suggest kidney disease and you're not diabetic, your physician may simply note it for future reference. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
