Thank you Suzanne for writing back. I got a referral for a Urologist and have not got the appointment yet since my doctor couldn't figure out what was happening. Try getting a referral to the urologist since they specialize in bladder concerns. I will keep you posted.
Sorry my doctor also hasn't figured it out. Since posting this article I have had 3 lots of antibiotics for a UTI and still haven't got any further as that's clearly not the problem.
Sorry I can be of much help but will keep you updated with any news.
I just happened t come across this post and i have the exact same condition and my doctor has not figured out why? What is happening with you? Any update would be helpful for me. Please post.
I would still suggest excluding a UTI as they can be asymptomatic. If no infection is present, then a microscopic exam of your urine is warranted.If the white cells and ACR elevation is persist, then a workup for that should be undertaken. As part of that assessment, you should have your kidney function tested as well.
This urinalysis is consistent with a urinary tract infection. I would suggest getting a urine culture done. As for the slightly elevated albumin to creatinine ratio (ACR), I would not place any stock in it until the infection (if present) is treated. An inflamed bladder can definitely increase the value of the ACR.
