Urine Microalbumin Levels
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Urine is the product of the kidneys, which is produced to eliminate the waste products of metabolism, manage body fluid balance, &maintain acid-base balance. The blood is first filtered by the kidneys, and the composition of the resulting fluid is then altered depending on the body's needs. It is composed of mostly water, and breakdown products from blood cells impart ...Read more
Yes. : This would be considered normal.Get a more detailed answer ›
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
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
What does high microalbumin/ creatinine 165.82, high protein/creatinine ratio 0.31. Urine microalbumin 13.1. And total protein25.0 indicate?
My test says hba1c 11.76 and spot urine microalbumin 76. blood sugar pp 335. What does all of this mean?
What do you suggest if my test says hba1c 11.76 and spot urine microalbumin 76. blood sugar pp 335. what does it mean?
Poor control!: Hi. Those numbers mean you're in really poor control and the diabetes (and probably blood pressure) may have already done some early kidney damage. Get your diabetes (and blood pressure and lipids) in tight control to prevent or delay REALLY BAD outcomes! It's the best time in history for treating diabetes! Don't lose the opportunity to save eyes, kidneys, feet, heart, etc. And see an eye doctor! ...Read more
I understand that an elevated randome urine microalbumin/cratinine ratio of 129 may be a sign of kidney disease for a type 2 diabetic, but how bad is?
Need more info: 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, 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
Microalbumin numbers and type 2 diabetes type 2 diabetes diagnosed 1 1/2 years ago. I did a 24 hour test and my microalbumin 24 tv results came back 2, 390, (extremely high), but my urine microalbumin/24hr came back at 12.0. My doctor sent me the test r
These : These two results sound at first hearing very different. The last 24 hour result is normal. Keep in mind that the spot (random) urine is evaluated as a ratio urine microalbumin to as miligrams of Albumin per gram of creatinine or micrograms Albumin per milligrams of creatinine. A spot determination is as good as the 24 hour collection, in general, so we do not recommend doing 24 hour collections. They are a nuisance. After less than 2 years of diabetes you would not be expected to have diabetic kidney disease. There may be a lab issue problem. Normal 24 hour urine Albumin is less than 30 milligrams. Was that first collection expressed as 2390 milligrams or micrograms? If micrograms, that value is not high. See a nephrologist if there is a question. And get a simple urinalysis to check out other aspects of your urine. ...Read more
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. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex.
Get HPV vaccine, if you are under 27 years of age. ...Read more
Here are some...: Elevated urine microalbumin suggests some kidney tissue damage like that from diabetic or hypertensive nephropathy, autoimmune kidney diseases like lupus, drug-induced interstitial nephritis, etc. Yet, its finding should be correlated with other tests like serum creatinine, BUN, GFR, microalbumin/cratinine urine ration, etc. as well as clinical profile. More? Ask your nephrologist or PCP... Best.. ...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

My boyfriends random urine test says he has 832.8 ug/ml for microalbumin. I can't find any sites to explain this number. What does this mean?
Urine Microalbumin: People sometimes have microalbumin or protein in their urine when checked. This could be caused by different things that bother the kidneys like diabetes or high blood pressure. It would be a good idea for someone to follow-up with their doctor if there is microalbumin in their urine. ...Read more
