In brief: Yes, but

It is important to rule out other causes.
Diabetes is a common cause of albuminuria and reflects microvascular damage.

The question was <can kidney stones cause albuminuria?>, NOT what are the causes of albuminuria
1 doctor agrees

In brief: Yes, they can

Kidney stones damage parts of the kidney called nephrons, and this allows protein to escape into the collecting system showing it in the urine.
