What is Microalbumin Creatinine Ratio Urine (ALB/CREAT Ratio) test?
Microalbumin test is a test to detect very small levels of a blood protein (albumin) in your urine. Creatinine is a waste product found in urine. A microalbumin creatinine ratio compares the amount of albumin to the amount of creatinine in your urine. A microalbumin creatinine ratio is used to screen people who are at higher risk for kidney disease. These include people with diabetes or high blood pressure. Identifying kidney disease at an early stage can help prevent many complications. If albumin is found in your urine beyond a particular level, it may mean that you may have a problem with your kidneys.

What our customers say about us
I normally have an issue with my veins as they are very thin but the technician was experienced and the sample came out in one shot at the first attempt, which really reassured me.
The pickup was done extremely nicely. Got a message when the person started , no calls for directions and most of all extremely polite representative.
Got my one year old tested. Very professional and safe. Using sealed sample kits with needles, tubes and gloves pre-packed.
