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

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

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

I am 30 weeks pregnant and my microalbumin levels are 28mg/l. is it normal?

I am 30 weeks pregnant and my microalbumin levels are 28mg/l. is it normal?

Protenuria: Proteinuria gradually increases throughout pregnancy and levels may reach 15mg/100 ml or 300 mg/day in a normal pregnancy in the third trimester. Values in excess of 15 mg/100 ml or 300 mg/day are usually associated with either pre-eclampsia or underlying renal disease. You must confirm the reference range for the testing lab to determine a more accurate interpretation. Discuss with your OB/GYN. Read more

Hba1c-6.5, microalbumin cetatinine ratio 119mg/gm other readings are normal?

Hba1c-6.5, microalbumin cetatinine ratio 119mg/gm other readings are normal?

Proteinuria: The hba1c of 6.5% is consistent with overall good diabetes control. However, the microalbumin ratio is high, suggesting that you are leaking protein through your kidneys. This can be an early sign of diabetes affecting your kidneys. You should do a 24 hr urine collection for protein excretion to better assess this. You likely should be on a ace inhibitor or arb to help protect your kidneys. Read more

Can the urine microalbumin test technically ever be LOW? Isn't a value of anything less than 30 (including 0) technically considered to be normal?

Can the urine microalbumin test technically ever be LOW? Isn't a value of anything less than 30 (including 0) technically considered to be normal?

Microalbuminemia: You are correct. Many tests do not have a lower level of values that are below normal, either because of the limits of detection, or because their presence is itself abnormal, and microalbumin in theurine is among these. 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

Exam showed normal blood work, but ua = high protein (18.0 mg/dl) high microalbumin/creatinine (36.76 mg/gcrea) and high microalbumin (5.0 mg/dl)?

Exam showed normal blood work, but ua = high protein (18.0 mg/dl) high microalbumin/creatinine (36.76 mg/gcrea) and high microalbumin (5.0 mg/dl)?

Urine protein: Are you diabetic or have history of kidney ds? Your doc may want to do 24-hour urine collection to determine total protein/24 hours as well as other tests of kidney function (creatinine clearance). Doc may advise no soda pop & examine your list of meds for possible causes. Read more

I did a 24 hour urine a month ago and it was normal. Last week I had more tests done, my microalbumin level was 73 and im 29 weeks pregnant. Normal?

Proteinuria: In normal pregnancy, urinary protein excretion may increase substantially, so, total protein excretion is considered abnormal in pregnant women when it exceeds 300 mg/day. Proteinuria may be a sign of preeclampsia, normally found in women in their first pregnancy. Less commonly, hypertension and diabetes can also cause proteinuria then. You need to follow up with your doctor to discuss this. Read more

My father is 55 year old. His blood test result of hba1c is 7.6%. And urine microalbumin level 85 mg/l. Is it normal? ? If not so how to control it.

My father is 55 year old. His blood test result of hba1c is 7.6%. And urine microalbumin level 85 mg/l. Is it normal? ? If not so how to control it.

High HbA1c: Your father has two problems. One is poorly controlled diabetes and the other is proteinuria. (p). P has ominous implications. Patients with significant p have an increased incidence of renal failure, stroke and cardiac disease. Have a nephrologist collect his urine to see how much protein is in it/day. He will need to be on ace-i or arb's to lower it. Have his glucose controlled so his hb1ac. Read more

Monocytes 15%; bun/creatinine ratio 24; esterase (abnormal); microalbumin 77.9; vitamin d 24.8. What does this mean with remaining results all normal?

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. What did your doctor say? Read more

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

Elevated Beta-2-microalbumin. What could cause this?

Elevated Beta-2-microalbumin. What could cause this?

Abnormal Proteins: Usually elevation in this protein is related to abnormal regulation of its production by your immune system. Occasionally there can lab/technique error, but I would suspect a blood disorder typically. Read more

What does it mean if you have a microalbumin level of 0.15g?

What does it mean if you have a microalbumin level of 0.15g?

Kidney disease: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, if the result you provided is accurate, you should consult a nephrologist. Read more

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 more

Can diet soda cause high microalbumin?

Can diet soda cause high microalbumin?

Very indirectly: I trust that you are talking about urine microalbumin. If that is the case, increased amount of Albumin in the urine is an indication of glomerular injury/kidney damage. Hypertension and diabetes are common causes of such injury. Caffeine in diet soda, if taken in excess, may aggravate blood pressure and damage the kidney. Read more
