WHAT IS ALBUMIN CREATININE RATIO (ACR) TEST?
Albumin is a protein that is found in the blood in a human body, this protein is utilized for the growing a repairing process of tissues. Creatinine is a waste product that is normally found in the urine. So, an albumin creatinine ratio test basically measures the amount of albumin and creatinine in human urine. Also, this test is usually performed to monitor for kidney diseases in human beings with a chronic disease like diabetes or hypertension (high blood pressure). If the kidneys are suspected to be damaged, a small amount of albumin is leaked or released into the urine. Another name for this test is Microalbumin Test, ACR.
WHAT DO THE TEST RESULT MEANS?
If no amount of albumin is noticed in the urine, then it means that your kidneys are functioning normally. When there is a moderate increase in the albumin levels when tested initially or repeatedly then there are chances that the patient has any kidney disease.
No special preparation is needed for the test.
A random sample of urine is required to conduct the albumin creatinine test. It can be a timed sample, meaning that a 4-hour, overnight, or 24-hour urine sample can be collected in a small clean container or a bottle. You can consult your healthcare practitioner for the proper understanding of the sample that is needed.
WHAT IS THE MEANING OF THE TEST RESULTS?
The following could be the possible results:
- Continuous Appearance of Albumin Levels in Urine: The continuous appearance of albumin levels in urine indicates that you are infected by kidney disease in the early stages.
- High Albumin Levels In Urine: The high albumin levels in urine mean that you have kidney failure
- Low Albumin Levels In Urine: The low albumin levels in the urine shows that you are not affected by kidney disease. However, urinary tract infections or other factors could also cause the appearance of albumin in the urine.
