Do you need to fast for a microalbuminuria test?

No: Microalbuminuria is the presence of small amounts of protein in the urine, usually too small to note on a dipstick test. A trace amount of protein can be normal, but usually there is none. The most common cause of m is diabetes mellitus; it usually indicates that the dm has started to affect your kidneys. Once this happens, take things more seriously: talk with your pcp and consider endocrinology. Read more

Serum creatine 1.22 with normal ultrasound, normal urinanalysis and too low leve of microalbuminuria (uncountable). Does it mean anything? Thanks M, 31

Good for you: This is what happens when a lawyer-shy medical community is forced to look at labs apart from people. This is a normal creatinine for a 30 year old man with muscle. Mine is higher. When I was lifting weights daily, it ran 1.6-1.8. I'm sorry you had to go through the workup. Read more

Urine test on my 11 year old showed low creatinine (12.5), microalbumin (12.9), high ratio (103). Does this indicate microalbuminuria or not?

Urine test on my 11 year old showed low creatinine (12.5), microalbumin (12.9), high ratio (103). Does this indicate microalbuminuria or not?

Possibly: It does mean that in that particular urine sample, your child was excreting higher than normal levels of albumin. However, he would need to have his urine tested 2-3 more times in the next few months to confirm the diagnosis, as lots of things (such as exercise) can temporarily increase your excretion of albumin. It is important to follow up with your doctor. Read more

What does it mean if I have urine trouble (microalbuminurea)?

How much?: If it is less than 30 mg/day, it is normal. If it is more than 300 mg/day, you should seek care as it is an indication of renal damage. Between 30 and 300 would require some investigation. See this site for more info. Http://www. Ncbi. Nlm. Nih. Gov/pmc/articles/PMC2658722/ Read more

I'm 2 weeks late, went in for a blood test and had hCG level of 1. Does this mean that I m/c or is number normal for a woman who's never been preg?

Neither: All that test result means is that the woman was not pregnant during the preceding few days to weeks just before the test. One should not read more ideas into a simple test result. Read more

What does the top number in BP mean? Trouble with tsh level - rapid HR after 2 a.m. bp 133/80 usually 110/78. Blood test - pituitary hormone waiting?

What does the top number in BP mean? Trouble with tsh level - rapid HR after 2 a.m. bp 133/80 usually 110/78. Blood test - pituitary hormone waiting?

How high it gets: Systolic (top) blood pressure is a measure of the maximum pressure in the arteries during the cardiac cycle, and the diastolic of how low it gets (between heartbeats). Stop worrying about minor fluctuations like this; systolic jumps wildly in everybody. Hoping that you turn out to have a healthy thyroid -- you say yours was removed. Your physician's your best information source; we can still help. Read more

ThryoTROPIN: Is a synonym for thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH). This hormone, produced by the pituitary gland, regulates thyroid function. Normal results for adults, in most labs, are 0.4-4.2 mU/L. This is the well-recognized/accurate test for hypothyroidism; a total thyroxine can sometimes add information. An H. pylori antibody blood test only measures past infection. Biopsy, stool antigen, breath test better Read more
