Microalbumin, Random Urine with Creatinine Most Popular

The Microalbumin, Random Urine with Creatinine test contains 1 test with 3 biomarkers.

Diabetic nephropathy is a complication of diabetes and is characterized by proteinuria. Before overt proteinuria develops, albumin excretion increases in those diabetic patients who are destined to develop diabetic nephropathy. There is a need to identify small, but abnormal, increases in the excretion of urinary albumin (in the range of 30-300 mg/day, ie, microalbuminuria). The National Kidney Foundation guidelines for the management of patients with diabetes and microalbuminuria recommend that all type 1 diabetic patients older than 12 years and all type 2 diabetic patients younger than 70 years have their urine tested for microalbuminuria yearly when they are under stable glucose control.
