I had a microalbumin test done yesterday. The result was 94.3 MG/G CREATININE. I was a patient of Nephrotic Syndrome. I want to know whether the result is OK?
A microalbumin result (in mg/g of creatinine) of less than 30 is considered normal. Between 30 and 300 means a very small amount of protein in the urine. Greater than 300 is significant protein, and greater than 3000 is nephrotic syndrome. So, while your result is not completely normal, it is a long, long way from being nephrotic. Best wishes for continued kidney health for you!
