Relationship Between Albumin Yield In Routine Urine And Albumin To Creatinine Ratio?
Good evening, I want to ask if the urine albumin result is negative but the urine albumin-to-cratinin ratio is 200, is it related to each other? What do you think about the cause?
Albumin is a protein produced in the body. Albumin has an important role in the body, such as to maintain oncotic pressure on blood vessels. Albumin is normally not in the urine (negative). However, several conditions can cause albumin in the urine, such as kidney failure, nephrotic syndrome.
From the circumstances that you experience, negative albumin in the urine is a normal thing. Meanwhile, the albumin-to-creatinine ratio is different from the albumin check. The albumin-to-creatinine ratio aims to detect microalbuminuria. So checking the albumin to creatinine ratio can detect kidney problems early, before there is an increase in albumin levels in the urine. The result of albumin creatninine 200 mg / gr indicates an increase, but the result of 200 cannot be categorized as a serious disorder.
The cause of an increase in the albumin to creatinine ratio can be found in renal failure. Kidney failure is correlated with several conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes mellitus, or due to the influence of taking certain medications.
Therefore, it is recommended that you go directly to a specialist in internal medicine, so that the doctor can check your condition further.
