Calcium Creatinine Ratio Urine Test

Ca/Cr Ratio


Test Code: 134908
Specimen Type: Urine

Description:

Calcium Creatinine Ratio Urine Test

This test measures calcium and creatinine levels in a random urine sample.  Increased levels of calcium in the urine are typically associated with a condition knows as Hypercalciuria.  Hypercalciuria can be related to a number of health concerns.  Some of the most common conditions associated with elevated urinary calcium levels are:

  • Increased risk of developing kidney stones
  • Prostate cancer
  • Kidney disease
  • Bone density disorders    

Excess calcium excretion in urine may be the result of a diet with too much sodium or an inherited genetic disorder.

Irregular results to a random calcium urine test may be followed up by a 24-hour calcium urine test.

Turnaround for this test is typically 1-2 business days

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.
