My micro albumin/ Creatinine urine ratio is high at 40.4. But my micro albumin is 12.0 and my creatinine is 29.7, both low. So is it really "high"?

My micro albumin/ Creatinine urine ratio is high at 40.4. But my micro albumin is 12.0 and my creatinine is 29.7, both low. So is it really "high"?

Ratio's: A ratio depends on if one number is higher or lower than the norm so if one is off then, being high or low, will make the ratio be off. Not sure what the norm ratios for the lab u are using are, but usually a Urine MA above 3 is high. ...Read more

BP: For a 29 year old your blood pressure is a bit higher than ideal and needs some attention.

Yes you need to know about increased urine albumin and your doctor needs to take care of it.

If you are not satisfied please see a kidney doctor -- nephrologist. ...Read more

My diabetics are under control from last 3 month. And taking ACE inherited but my urine albumin is getting high. My PCR is 4.5 mg/dl. What can I do?

Microalbumin: Parts of your question that are hard to understand. Diabetes under control; what is your A1C? Ideally, it should be under 7.5. If A1C has high for a long time, it will take time to reduce diabetes complications. The ACE inhibitor is good, and will reduce kidney damage. What is PCR? Do you mean ACR, albumin/creat ratio? 4.5 mg/dl does not make sense. Low A1C, ACE-I and BP control are all important ...Read more

24hr urine (5000mL) creatinine, protein, and albumin results are high - about double the max normal, but blood is normal. What would cause this?

24hr urine (5000mL) creatinine, protein, and albumin results are high - about double the max normal, but blood is normal. What would cause this?

Proteinuria: With certain kidney pathology there can be heavy amounts of protein lost in the urine due to glomerular pathology but the rest of the kidney function can be good enough so that blood tests for kidney function are still normal. A nephrologist can better explain your status after evaluating you and all your pertinent test results. ...Read more

What does albumin and creatine in the urine mean? Albumin 1.5mg. Creatine 76 mg. I'm diabetic 331 lipid, alk phos high, a1c 13.5

Many health issues: An early sign of diabetic kidney damage is a "leak" of protein (albumin) into the urine, called the albumin/creat ratio. The values you give do not appear to be high, but you need to see your doctor, for this as well as other issues, including your very poor blood sugar control (A1C 13.5), which is damaging your kidneys, eyes, driving up your lipids and putting you at high risk of heart attack. ...Read more

Albumin levels high? I am a 40 year old male. I recently took a urine test and saw that my albumin levels were high according to the lab results chart. The albumin level was 47. My doctor stated that they are a little elevated, but no to be concerned.

Albumin: Albumin is a protein. In general if our blood level of Albumin is high, it means we have good nutrition. Please be sure that you didn't have too much protein in your urine however, as this can mean that you have kidney disease which is more likely in you since you have diabetes. Please be sure the protein in your urine was not high. ...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

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

May get follow-up: This is a way of estimating how much protein is being lost via the kidneys on a spot urine, without using a 24 hour check. This is a wee bit high.

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

Albumin (Definition)

Albumins are proteins which dissolve in water and are not covered with chains of sugars. The most common is serum albumin. 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
