Microalbumin:Creatinine Ratio Urine Test

The Microalbumin:Creatinine Ratio test is used to help screen for conditions such as high blood pressure or diabetes which can cause kidney damage.  This test includes measurements for Microalbumin, Creatinine and the Microalbumin:Creatinine Ratio.  Albumin is a protein which may be detectable in small amounts in a person's urine if their kidneys are not functioning properly.  Creatinine is a byproduct released by the muscles which is usually filtered out of the body in the urine at a constant rate.  Because it helps to compensate for the fact that albumin levels in the urine may fluctuate throughout the day, the additional ratio between microalbumin and creatinine can provide more accurate results that a measure of Microalbumin by itself.

This test is usually ordered to periodically evaluate kidney function for someone who has been diagnosed with diabetes or hypertension.  It may also be used to monitor treatment for conditions which cause kidney damage.  A Blood Albumin test is also available for people who wish to check their Albumin level. 

Turnaround time for the Microalbumin:Creatinine Ratio, Random urine test is typically 1 business day.

Note: Result turn around times are an estimate and are not guaranteed. Our reference lab may need additional time due to weather, holidays, confirmation/repeat testing, or equipment maintenance.


The Microalbumin:Creatinine Ratio, Random Urine has no special requirements.
