Microalbumin ur <0.5 Creatinine ur 12.5 Ratio Unable to caculate. Is this normal?

Microalbumin ur <0.5 Creatinine ur 12.5 Ratio Unable to caculate. Is this normal?

Yes: The urine microalbumin to creatinine ratio is a measure of protein in the urine. It is a marker of kidney disease and of vascular (blood vessel) disease. Less than 30 is considered normal. Above 300 in diabetics is considered diabetic nephropathy (diabetic kidney disease). In between is considered borderline. If the microalbumin in your urine is too little to be able to calculate a ratio, good! ...Read more

My 14y/o daughter is type1dm. Her microalbumin w/create ratio is high 36.her creatinine and micro albumin are normal levels. Is this something to worry?

My 14y/o daughter is type1dm. Her microalbumin w/create ratio is high 36.her creatinine and micro albumin are normal levels. Is this something to worry?

Unclear question: I understand that your daughter has type I diabetes and she has protein in her urine. If that is correct, it not an urgent matter, but protein in urine portends kidney disease. It can be moderated by better glucose control and medication. It would be prudent to discuss it with your doctor. ...Read more

I have a urine test don on 1-27-2012 the test come back microalbumin/ creatinine ratio, random urine 2084 how bad is it what I need to do to fix it and how bad is it. I don nothing about the pr.

Please: Please reply with more information. The number you gave is not a ratio. It is very difficult to interpret what a random urine creatinine level means without knowing the microalbumin level and looking at the ratio. Lastly, whoever ordered this test should be able to explain why they ordered it and what the results mean. Please reply with more information or follow up with your doctor.
Take care. ...Read more

I have a low anion gap, low estGFR, a high Microalbumin/Creatinine ratio, HA1C and a high ALT. Any concerns/thoughts?

Diabetic kidney: These are signs of emerging diabetic kidney disease and likely fatty liver from diabetes. Is concerning. High Microalbumin/creatinine ratio indicates albumin leak into urine from overt diabetic kidney change. The low eGFR indicates kidney impairment. The low anion gap reflects low albumin in blood and would indicate high spillage of albumin into urine. High A1c indicates poor glucose control. ...Read more

Urine test on my 11 year old showed low creatinine (12.5), microalbumin (12.9), high ratio (103). Does this indicate microalbuminuria or not?

Urine test on my 11 year old showed low creatinine (12.5), microalbumin (12.9), high ratio (103). Does this indicate microalbuminuria or not?

Possibly: It does mean that in that particular urine sample, your child was excreting higher than normal levels of albumin. However, he would need to have his urine tested 2-3 more times in the next few months to confirm the diagnosis, as lots of things (such as exercise) can temporarily increase your excretion of albumin. It is important to follow up with your doctor. ...Read more

Nothing alone: Percentages of white cells are totally uninformative in the absence of absolute counts. Your bun/creatinine ratio may be nothing more than your having just eaten a steak dinner. A trace of Albumin in a non-diabetic's urine usually means nothing. I need the units for the vitamin d -- what did your physician say? Lab ranges are set so that almost everybody has a few flags.

Possible cause of high microalbumin/creatinine ratio, blood in urine (all other labs normal), pain in kidney area, and tingling/numb fingers and toes?

Possible cause of high microalbumin/creatinine ratio, blood in urine (all other labs normal), pain in kidney area, and tingling/numb fingers and toes?

That sounds like: Diabetes. The only detail that concerns me is the presence of blood in your urine. That can have a number of causes, but nephritis needs to be ruled out. Nevertheless the numbness and tingling in your hands and feet along with microalbuminuria suggest new diagnosis of diabetes that is not controlled. In any event you've got to get in to talk w/ your MD ASAP about all this determine a diagnosis. ...Read more

Good or bad? CREATININE, URINE 292.9 (no ref range provided) However my MICROALBUMIN/CREATININE and MICROALBUMIN, was completely normal.

Microalbuminuria: As long as your microalbumin-to-creatinine ratio is normal (less than 30), then you're considered normal, at least no microalbuminuria. This is standard screening for those w/diabetes. ACE inhibitors & ARBs (blood pressure drugs) can lower risk of developing kidney failure. So can optimal sugar control (aiming for A1c less than 7). Other way to assess kidney function is eGFR calculated from creati ...Read more

What affects microalbumin/creatinine level in urine: wine, sugar, etc.?

Does not add up: Creatinine is normally present in urine, microalbumin indicated glomerular leakage, sugar/glucose in urine mostly occurs in diabetes and wine is not present in the urine.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats.

Hello. My dad did blood and urine tests: the creatinine is 0.9mg/dl and the microalbumin is 586 mg/l. What are the causes for this high result? Thanks

Need evaluation: The creatinine level is normal; however, the amount of Albumin in urine is elevated and needs to be investigated. Diabetes is the commonest cause, but other kidney diseases can also result in loss of Albumin in the urine. It would good to talk to his doctor. See this site for more info on this subject.

High microalbumin and microalbumin/creatinine lab results with good b.P. And kidney function. Why high?

High microalbumin and microalbumin/creatinine lab results with good b.P. And kidney function. Why high?

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. ...Read more

Your results (ACR 17 mg/dl and serum creatinine 0.6) are indicative or normal kidney function. ...Read more

Having said that, it does put you at risk of kidney disease, nerve and eye damage and other microvacsular lesions. How bad depends on your creatinine, blood pressure and A1c levels. ...Read more

I take cytomel (t3) 10mg daily with synthroid 50mg daily for a thyroidectomy in 2010. Does T3 (liothyronine) cause a increase in creatinine? Microabumin/creat is 59h

No: Cytomel (liothyronine) is a synthetic form of triiodothyronine which is one of the hormones normally made in the thyroid. There is no evidence that it should affect renal function; this abnormality should be evaluated separately from your hypothyroidism. ...Read more

Not accurate: Online calculators make lots of assumption. First they assume that you ovulate, which is not the case for all women. Then they either assume that your periods are exactly 28 days apart or that you ovulate exactly 14 days before your next period. A better way is to use over the counter ovulation prediction kits which will help you know when exactly you are ovulating and time intercourse ...Read more

How can the bun/creatinine ratio show dehydration?

How can the bun/creatinine ratio show dehydration?

BUN/Cr > 20:1: Urea (BUN) is reabsorbed by the kidney; creatinine is not. In dehydration, as water decreases and urea is reabsorbed, the BUN rises. Eventually, the cr will rise, too (if dehydration continues), but it doesn't increase in magnitude as fast as the bun. The bun/cr ration is usually ~10:1...When it's greater than 20:1, this suggests dehydration. ...Read more

How can the bun/creatinine ratio indicate dehydration?

May be helpful: There are many causes of an elevated BUN or elevated creatinine, and the ratio between them must be interpreted in the clinical context of each specific patient. What is commonly referred to as "dehydration" usually causes an increase in the BUN to creatinine ratio, but other significant conditions may cause a similar rise and need to be considered, especially if there is an acute illness involved. ...Read more
