I got some test results yesterday. While I think they might be out of range, I'm not sure if they are in range, slightly out of range or significantly out of range.

Here they are:

Microalbumin (mcg/ml) = 697.8

Creat UR (mg/dl) = 78.5

Albumin/Creratinine (mcg/mg) 888.9

I hope to hear from the doctor but right now I'm curious as to the significance of these test results.



Thanks,

Hi
I'm not sure either. Are those values in micrograms? How many micrograms in a milligram? Unfortunately, every lab is slightly different in their ranges. You can ask them what the normal range is. My lab usually tells me what a normal range is for tests that I have. When do you see your Dr.?

Here's what's on the lab slip:

Microalbumin (mcg/ml): 697.8 Range: 30-300
Creat UR(mg/dl): 78.5 <30
Albumin/Creatinine (mcg/mg) 888.9 >300

I see him again in three months - unless he calls. It's been several days so I'm beginning to think he may not call.

Thanks for your help.

I agree you should call your doctor with the levels being what they are and the range, it sounds like you the doctor should at least return a phone call.

Does the slip mention anything about GFR or BUN?
