Microalbumin Creatinine Ratio Random Urine Test Overview
Albumin is a protein component that is important for cell repairing and system functions. Normally, the kidneys filter the blood and help remove the waste products through urine and retain the important components especially proteins such as albumin. When there is an impairment in kidney functions, albumin escape the blood and are excreted in the urine. Creatinine is a waste product normally found in the urine. Albumin levels tend to vary during the day and based on certain foods consumed. Hence, the microalbumin levels are compared to the creatinine levels and their ratio thus gives a better idea about the kidney function.
