Urinary microalbumin test is performed to detect any kidney damages and kidney diseases. The kidneys filter the waste products and send the waste through the pee. Albumin is a good protein which kept in your kidney. Albumin helps the body to heal fast. However, if the kidney is not working properly, it keeps leaking into the urine. Most common kidney diseases are diabetes and hypertension.
Urinary microalbumin test is suggested when you have:
1. Type 1 diabetes.
2. Type 2 diabetes.
3. High blood pressure.
It also needs to get tested if the person is 65 or older in age. Alternatively, if the person is with risk factors for kidney and heart diseases. Urinary microalbumin test will show the albumin to creatinine ratio. It is a waste product found in the blood which must be removed by the kidneys. When kidneys are damaged the albumin level in the urine increases and creatinine level decreases. Usually, kidney damage doesn’t show any sign and symptoms in the early stage. Foamy urine indicates kidney damage.
Some factors showing the high level of microalbumin in the urine:
2. Other kidney diseases.
3. Urinary tract infection.
4. Blood in the urine.
6. Vigorous exercise right before the test.
