What does a microalbuminuria test level number 46 mean?

DAMAGE TO KIDNEY. Normally very small Albumin is excreted in urine any damage to kidney increases Albumin excretion, indicating capillary damage throughout bascular bed of body.
High microalbumin. Your microalbumin level is elevated indicating kidney damage. This test detects very small levels of a blood protein (albumin) in your urine. A microalbumin test is used to detect early signs of kidney damage in patients (esp diabetics and those w/ HTN). I tell my patients to think of their renal filter mesh getting shot-gunned by the damage & the holes allowing the microalbumin to flow through.
