What does it measure?
The Protein Creatinine Ratio Urine test: Measures the excessive protein excreted in the urine. Normally, the urine protein elimination is less than 150 mg/day and less than 30 mg of albumin/day. Temporarily raised levels may be seen in conditions such as stress, infections, pregnancy, cold exposure, diet, or heavy exercise. The Protein/Creatinine ratio test is done to monitor kidney functioning, to check for damage in case of the condition affecting the kidney, and efficacy of treatment on already affected kidneys.In a normal functioning kidney, the filtered proteins are retained or reabsorbed and sent back to the blood. Whereas, if any damage is caused to the kidneys, it may affect their functioning which may cause detectable amounts of protein extracted into the urine.
