Hi. I have had an abnormal urine test, these are the findings- can you offer any help in translation the meaning behind the numbers please?

Pathology Investigations

Urine Microalbumin
Urine microalbumin level 151 mg/L
Urine creatinine level 12.4 mmol/L
Urine albumin/creatinine ratio 12.2 mg/mmol [0.0 - 3.5]
Above high reference limit

This means that you have a microalbuminuria - a term referring to a small amount of excess protein in the urine. This finding could be a sign of damage to the kidneys by diseases such as diabetes. However, it must be confirmed by a repeat test in 3 months as many things can falsely elevate the test (e.g. urinary tract infection, menstruation, vigorous exercise).
