Microbumin Test - More Information

The microalbumin test measures the urine level of microalbumin. Microalbumin literally refers to small amounts of albumin, a protein in the blood. Normally, albumin stays in the blood and is not found in the urine.

When the kidneys are damaged by disease like diabetes and high blood pressure (hypertension), they become leaky. When a kidney is damaged in this way, trace amounts of albumin can sneak through its filters and allow microalbumin to get into the urine and show up on the microalbumin test.

This microalbumin test does measure the random urine creatinine level to calculate the microalbumin / creatinine ratio. This ratio is utilized by organizations such as the ADA to evaluate the microalbumin level in the larger context of one's kidney function.

The microalbumin test is an important screening marker for people with chronic diabetes. Along with the A1c test and the glucose test, all components of the diabetes management panel, the microalbumin test can help identify people who need more aggressive management of their diabetes with diet, medications or both.
