With continuation with presence of protein in a 24 hour urine sample, a sensitive, rapid, easily performed test is easily available called as albumin creatinine ratio. Microalbumin is calculated per gram of creatinine which the kidney is excreting. This test is helpful in giving an early diagnostic evaluation regarding the health of the kidneys.
