Urine protein to creatinin ratio formula.? And urine albumin to creatinin ratio formula? What is difference between uPCR and uACR.

See below: For formula see the website listed below.
PCR is ratio of total protein to creatinine and ACR is ratio of albumin to creatinine. Albumin is one of the proteins in blood and it is usually the first to leak into urine.

The chemical examination of my urine sample says positive albumin and the microscopical examination says many sperms, what does this mean?

Get evaluated.: The presence of sperms on microscopic analysis of the urine is not necessarily abnormal, & can occur if you gave your sample after recent ejaculation. If you are experiencing problems with ejaculation, get evaluated. More importantly, the presence of Albumin in the urine may be abnormal. Usually, the kidneys prevent such proteins from entering the urine. Followup with your primary care physician. ...Read more

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.

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.

High levels, not low: 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. ...Read more

Kindly interpret: my random urine albumin: less than 5.0 mg/l, random urine creatinine: less than 15.0 mg/dl. What is my albuminl:creatinine ratio?

Check again.: These readings seem more like those in serum although they are far below normal levels for Albumin and above normal for creatinine. The normal levels are 3.5-5.0 g/dl and <1.5 mg/dl for serum Albumin and creatinine respectively. The urine protein levels are <150 mg/day and creatinine is 1.0-1.6 g/day. The normal range of urine output is 0.4-3.0 l/day. These are low normal at most so recheck. ...Read more

Meaning of a person has "traces" of albumin in their urine?

Kidney inflammation: Normal kidneys are not supposed to lose protein. Albumin is a form of protein. If you are losing traces of albumin, it means the membranes in the kidney that usually retain and hold the protein from spilling into the urine has become leaky, which is usually a result of inflammation and damage. See a doctor to run more tests to prevent the condition from worsening. ...Read more

What does it mean if you have trace of albumin in your urine?

Trace = small amount: Protein/albumin is not normally found in urine. The term trace in urinalysis means small amount. A protein trace in urine = 10 mg/100 ml giving a slightly hazy appearance to the urine. Albumin is the most common protein found in the bloodstream; it is finding its way into the urine by some means. Other clinical info is needed with evaluation by your doctor to narrow down the cause. Good luck! ...Read more

My urine test showes albumin 1+[ 30 mg/dl ] is it ok. Having history of kidny stones.

Proteinuria Rx: You have proteinuria which is not related to your kidney stones. Treatment of proteinuria (p) depends on its cause. Some glomuerlonephritis cases are treated with steroids and other agents to reduce p. Patients with diabetic nephropathy causing p are treated with ace-i, arb's and non-dhp calcium channel blockers. These also reduce BP which ameliorates p. Ask your doctor for a treatment plan for p. ...Read more

These molecules transport other molecules which don't dissolve in water very well. But its main function is to regulate the amount of water in the blood. Another type of Albumin is the ...Read more
