I have been doing dipsticks at home as I often feel unwell on waking.
I’ve noticed my results tend to be like this when I feel rubbish:
Microalbumin: 3-8 mg/L
Creatinine: 200 mg/dL
Is that normal for first pee/slight dehydrated person or should I go to dr?
I think everything else looks normal

Dipsticks are not the most accurate method of measuring urinary protein. If you really wanted to know your urinary protein level you could do a proper albumin to creatinine ratio at a lab. That being said, the estimate of your protein in the urine seems to be quite low (very close to normal) and would not explain feeling like "rubbish".

All the best,
