Understanding Urine Albumin Creatinine Ratio

The urine albumin creatinine ratio (UACR) is a test that measures the amount of albumin, a protein, and creatinine, a waste product, in your urine. It is an important indicator of kidney health and can help detect early signs of kidney damage.

The normal range for the urine albumin creatinine ratio is less than 30 mg/g. This means that a ratio within this range indicates a healthy kidney function and a minimal amount of albumin leakage into the urine.

Microalbumin Creatinine Microalbumin creatinine refers to a more sensitive measurement of albumin in the urine. It is used to detect even small amounts of albumin leakage, which can be an early sign of kidney damage in individuals with diabetes or hypertension.
