microalbuminuria test


What is the Microalbuminuria Test? A urine microalbumin test is used to determine the presence of low quantities of blood protein (albumin) in the urine. Microalbumin tests are used to detect early symptoms of renal disease in those at risk of developing kidney disease.

Healthy kidneys filter waste from the blood and retain the beneficial components, such as albumin. Kidney disease can result in proteins leaking from the kidneys and exiting the body via the urine. When the kidneys are injured, albumin (al-BYOO-min) is one of the first proteins to leak.

Microalbumin tests are advised for individuals at a greater risk of developing kidney diseases, such as those with diabetes or hypertension.

Why done? 

A doctor may suggest a urine microalbumin test to detect kidney impairment early. Treatment may postpone or prevent renal disease.

The frequency of microalbumin testing depends on your health and risk of kidney injury. As in:

  • Diabetes 1. If you have type 1 diabetes, your doctor may advise you to take a microalbumin test every five years.
  • Diabetes 2. After diagnosing type 2 diabetes, your doctor may recommend a microalbumin test once a year.
  • Hypertension. High blood pressure may necessitate more frequent microalbumin testing. It would help if you discussed this with your doctor.

Your doctor may advise treatment and more frequent testing if your microalbumin level is high.
