Description

This test is used to detect early kidney disease in those with diabetes or other risk factors such as high blood pressure (hypertension). Albumin is a type of protein in blood, and when kidneys are functioning properly, virtually no albumin is present in the urine. Creatinine is a byproduct of muscle metabolism and is normally released into the urine at a constant rate and its level in the urine is an indication of urine concentration. Albumin/creatinine ratio gives a more accurate indication of how much albumin is being released into the urine as compared to a spot microalbumin test.

Test Instructions

The test is performed on a urine sample. Avoid vigorous exercise 24 hrs prior to the test
