Dr. Gurmukh Singh answered:

What is the formula to calculate urine protein creatinine ratio?

See below

Protein
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.

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.

Dr. Ed Friedlander answered:

Urine Creatinine 24hour is 18.5 (7.1-17.7mmol/d) and my Urine Protein 24hour is 0.14 (<0.15g/d), I have IgM K monocloncal protein in B2 what is this?

Stop worrying

Creatinine
Reference ranges are where most people fall; there's no reason at all to get upset about a trivially high creatinine on a test that is done only to make a ratio with the albumin, which seems quite normal, thanks. My own guess is that your physician is eager to reassure you, and I'd urge you to accept this. There's much good in your life & future -- keep your eyes there.

Urine protein to creatinine of 206/1.8 or 2. Do I need ACE or ARB inhibitor for protein problem? I'm conerned about side effects.

Forgive my frankness

Urine
Even if you have significant proteinuria, nobody here can advise you about medication without a big picture ofyour health. The most common cause of proteinuria is simply standing up -- several percent of people are like this, and a first-voided morning urine without significant proteinuria would confirm this if it's you. Don't treat lab values and demand to understand your workup.

If you're not getting a 24hr sample, a simpler test is to measure the amount of protein/gr of creatinine in a random sampled urine. Normal is (in most labs)

Dr. Ed Friedlander answered:

Had LFT and my bilirubin is 1.7 and range is 0.2- 1.1 and in my urine protein traces are found, why is this so ?

Big picture

Urine
Several percent of humankind run a bilirubin in this range because of Gilbert's non-disease; the bilirubin is almost all indirect. If you've had previous chemical profiles and this has been present; it's probably Gilbert's, otherwise you'll get a workup, perhaps some meds you are taking. Trace protein in the urine is generally of no concern.
