The normal result for ACR test for albumin creatinine ratio is 2-20 mg/mmol for male gender and for all age groups, 2.8-28 mg/mmol for female gender and for all age groups.
Albumin excretion increases in patients with diabetes who are destined to develop diabetic nephropathy. More importantly, at this phase of increased albumin excretion before overt proteinuria develops, therapeutic maneuvers can be expected to significantly delay, or possibly prevent, development of nephropathy.
