This: This is an estimate of how much protein you are spilling in your urine. You are spilling some, but not a large amount to typically warrant a biopsy if the numbers are correct. Your rheumatologist may still want you to see a nephrologist or kidney doctor to see if they can minimize any protein spillage. ...Read more

Urine (Definition)

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

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

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. http://www.fpnotebook.com/urology/lab/urnprtntcrtnrt.htm ...Read more

Urine protein/creatinine ratio 2225 mg/g what does that mean?

Urine protein/creatinine ratio 2225 mg/g what does that mean?

Needs confirmation : It means you have around 2 gm of protien in the urine which is very abnormal. This needs a confirmation by repeating the test and be sure you don't have other reason to explain it like UTI or blood in the urine. If confirmed, then needs comprehensive work up to determine the reason. Diabetes is very common one but there are multiple systemic and/or kidney diseases that could cuase it ...Read more

Is a random urine Protein/creatinine ratio of 405mg/g something to be worried about, or no big deal? Is it only mildy elevated or high?

Is a random urine Protein/creatinine ratio of 405mg/g something to be worried about, or no big deal? Is it only mildy elevated or high?

Depends on context.: Lots of things can cause slight to mild proteinuria. In the context of diabetes this can be a sign of significant kidney problems from the diabetes and an early indicator that the kidneys are being damaged. Or... some contamination from menses. Needs to be put into the entire perspective. ...Read more

What is the formula to calculate urine protein creatinine ratio?

See below: The protein-to-creatinine ratio is a calculated value. The amount of urine protein and creatinine in a single specimen is measured in the lab. Each value is expressed in milligrams per deciliter. The amount of protein is divided by the amount of creatinine. ...Read more

What does urine protein creatinine ratio of 23 g/ mol mean? I have been diagnosed with CkD G2A3.

What does urine protein creatinine ratio of 23 g/ mol mean? I have been diagnosed with CkD G2A3.

Mod prot in urine: There are two main components to kidney disease, which predict progression & treatment. One is function or the stage 1-5 with one nl and 5 severe & on or close to dialysis. Stage 2 in G2 is still considered mild & low risk. We next look at a protein called albumin and 23 g/mmol is moderate (>30) severe. In your question, you write CKD G2A3, I can't comment on the G, but 23 g/mmol is A2 - on tx? ...Read more

Urine protein randm: 11.7, urine creatinine randm: 304 high (ref 58-161), protein/creatinine ratio: 38.44. What does tht mean? Do i need more test?

Proteinuria: You have proteinuria (p) and the first thing is to have a 24 hour urine collection to see the amount of protein in your urine and to assess your kidney function. Have a renal ultrasound to assess kidneys' size depending on the p, i would send off blood for aso, anca 2, complement c3 and c4, hiv, hepatitis b antibody to see if a cause could be found for the p, if not a kidney biopsy may be needed. ...Read more

Urine protein creatinine ratio results shows in which unit is it mg/dl or mg/gl. Protein is 423 mg/dl. And creatinine is 91 mg/dl. So what is my PCR.

Urine protein creatinine ratio results shows in which unit is it mg/dl or mg/gl. Protein is 423 mg/dl. And creatinine is 91 mg/dl. So what is my PCR.

Significant: The protein/creatinine ratio is 4.6, which roughly corresponds to 4-5 grams of protein per 24 hours. This is clearly abnormal and consistent with the nephrotic syndrome. This requires investigation by Nephrology, likely to include a biopsy of the kidney (a safe and common procedure). ...Read more

No concern: What you described is not a cause for concern. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. 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. ...Read more

Could vaginal discharge contaminate a 24 hr urine test to give 0.42g of protein? Creatine tests normal.

Could vaginal discharge contaminate a 24 hr urine test to give 0.42g of protein? Creatine tests normal.

Not significantly: Most OB's order 24 hour urine in pregnant hypertensivie patients and almost all pregnant patients have leukorrhea (pregnancy discharge). It is primarily mucous and not loaded with protein. While it might contribute a small amount , it still wouldn't matter because the cutoffs we use for preeclampsia are all based on pregnant women with similar discharge. ...Read more

Positive ANA, Positive Smith antibodies, protein in urine 100, creatine in urine 186. Should I be worried?

Positive ANA, Positive Smith antibodies, protein in urine 100, creatine in urine 186. 

Should I be worried?

Lupus: Anti Smith antibodies are very specific for SLE. They can be positive in other autoimmune diseases including mixed connective tissue disease and scleroderma. A positive ANA especially one with homogenous staining is also associated with SLE but can be positive in other diseases. SLE can be associated with kidney disease with protein in the urine. 100 is normal. No kidney disease. ...Read more

My bun was a 10 and my creatine was 0.8. Could i still have kidney failure or would those levels have to be high? I have protein in urine regularly!

My bun was a 10 and my creatine was 0.8. Could i still have kidney failure or would those levels have to be high? I have protein in urine regularly!

Not Likely: Those are healthy kidney numbers. However, you can have other causes of proteinuria or renal insufficiency and should follow up with a nephrologist or your regular doctor. ...Read more

7 mo postpartum. Hypertension right after birth. Resolved quickly. Now have protein in urine (0.42g/24 hr). Creatine tests normal. Possibilities?

Urine : You have 420mg of protein which is above normal threshold but not enough to suggest disease. The fact you have Pregnancy associated htn suggest you should follow your BP. I would recheck your urine test and would also check micro albumin urine. Future urine for protein and urine for creatinine ratio is as reliable as a 24 hr and can be used to follow progression. ...Read more

Proteinuria: You have proteinuria (p), that can lead to other cardiovascular problems. Patients with p have more strokes, mi's and renal failure than those without it. You can take ace-i, arb's and calcium channnel blockers like Diltiazem to reduce both BP and p. You will need to have a 24 hour urine collected to measure your kidney function and quantify how much p/day you have. See your doctor for help. ...Read more
