Microalbumin urine test is the most sensitive and reliable index to detect kidney disease in the early stage. Today, we get the question from one patient: what does it mean when your microablumin urine is 147.9? Now, let’s have a look.
What is the microalbumin urine?
The test looks for minuscule amounts of albumin in your urine. Albumin is a protein necessary for tissue growth and healing.
What is the normal level of microalbumin urine?
In the normal condition, if the human has a normal body metabolism, the protein in urine is very less. Precisely speaking, the specific amount of protein in urine is less than 20mg/L.
What does it mean when your microalbumin urine is 147.9?
Generally speaking, if patients find that their protein urine ranges from 20mg/dl to 200mg/dl after the test, then, patients will be diagnosed with microalbumin urine. We can see that 147.9mg/dl belongs to the range. Well then, how?
Actually, it can be caused by many factors. It is most often caused by kidney damage from diabetes. But other conditions can lead to the condition, like high blood pressure, heart failure, lupus and so on. Therefore, it is important to find out the underlying causes.
If it is caused by kidney disease, how to deal with the condition?
Protein can leak into your urine when your kidneys aren’t working properly. People with high blood pressure and diabetes are at high risk of developing kidney disease. It is well known that our kidneys are endowed with numerous functions which can help remove the extra wastes and retain the useful substance. Glomeruli are the important filters of the kidneys. If hypertension patients or diabetics suffer from microalbumin urine, it is possible that high blood pressure or high blood sugar has attacked glomeruli. In the case, what we should do is to take the correct and professional treatment, so as to stop the renal fibrosis progress, repair damaged kidney intrinsic cells and recovery normal renal function.
