Re: [IP] Microalbumin

Hi.  My understanding is that this is a test for protien in the urine. =
 It lets you know how your kidneys are doing.  Excess protien in the urin=
e can be a sign of kidney damage, it is often associated with high blood =
pressure.  There are two (2) urine tests.  One way, is the first emptying=
 of the bladder in the morning.  The other is a 24 hour collection.  Ther=
e are several 'things' that can throw the numbers of the first method off=
, heavy exercise, alcohol, perscription drugs, etc. . . If your numbers =
are out of range talk to your endo.  Good luck~Frank
