The urine albumin test detects the presence of albumin in the urine. Normally, albumin is found in the blood and is filtered by the kidneys. A very small amount of albumin is usually passed in the urine when the kidneys are functioning normally. In case of damage to the kidney, the albumin leaks into the urine in abnormal amounts. This is known as albuminuria. The Urine albumin test is done: • To screen and detect for kidney disease • In case of diabetics • In case of high blood pressure

faqFrequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What is the right method to collect a urine sample?

The right method to collect a urine sample is to collect midstream urine. Discard the first few drops of urine as it might contain the microorganisms present on the surface of the genitals. It is advised to clean the genitals and surrounding area before the collection of a urine sample.

Why it is advised to collect midstream urine for the collection of a urine sample?

The urine culture might contain the growth of different types of bacteria if the initial stream of urine is collected for a urine sample as the bacteria present inside and outside the urinary tract are different. The genital area is cleaned and the skin around it before giving the sample. Discard the initial stream of urine and collect mid-stream urine for accurate results.

What is the function of albumin in the body?

The main function of albumin is to keep the fluid from leaking out of blood vessels, transports hormones, and nourishes tissues. It helps in the transportation of nutrients like vitamins, medicines, and calcium throughout the body.

Why high levels of albumin are noted in kidney disease?

Albumin is normally present in high concentrations in the blood. Normally, kidneys conserve albumin and do not release in it the urine. However, in case of damage to the kidneys, they are not able to conserve albumin, and thus it is lost in the urine.

What additional tests can be advised along with the albumin test?

The additional tests which can be advised along with albumin test include creatinine test, blood urea nitrogen test, or renal panel.

What are the symptoms of a liver disorder?

The symptoms of a liver disorder include yellowing of eyes or skin, fatigue, weakness, loss of appetite, unexplained weight loss, swelling or pain in abdomen, dark urine, light-colored stool, and itching.

7. Should I inform my doctor if I am taking any medicines?

Yes, please inform your doctor if you are taking any medicines or supplements as it might interfere with the test results.
