Microalbumin/Creatinine Ratio

Microalbumin-to-creatinine ratio is a kind of urine test used to measure the amount of a protein called albumin in the urine. Creatinine is a kind of waste product in the urine. In the microalbumin/creatinine ratio test, the amount of urine albumin is compared with the quantity of creatinine.

The results of microalbumin-to-creatinine ratio can help to determine if the body is excreting albumin at an increased rate. The excretion of albumin at an increased rate may indicate kidney diseases.
