Microalbumin To Creatinine Ratio

The albumin/creatinine ratio detects tiny amounts of blood protein (aka albumin) in your urine.

It’s used to detect early signs of damage in people at risk for developing kidney disease.

This ratio test can:

  • Assess kidney function in people with diabetes or any other risks involved
  • Detect kidney disease
  • Screen someone with an existing kidney condition

The National Kidney Foundation (NKF) recommends at least once a year screening if you’re:

  • Type 1 diabetic
  • Type 2 diabetic
  • Age 60 or more

According to NKF:

For people who have risk factors for chronic kidney disease - Screening is recommended.

What are the risk factors?

  • Age 60 or older
  • High blood pressure
  • Family history of kidney failure

According to the American Diabetes Association (ADA):

  • Type 2 diabetics should take an albumin test every year
  • Type 1 diabetics should take an albumin test 5 years after diagnosis, and then annual testing

Note: A Urine sample is taken. There is no preparation required before this test.
