KIDNEYS >> Measures of Kidney Function >> Urine Albumin
Inside healthy kidneys, tiny filtering units called nephrons filter out wastes but keep in large molecules, like red blood cells and albumin (protein). Some kidney diseases damage these filters so albumin and other proteins can leak into the urine. Protein—albumin—in the urine can be a sign of kidney disease. Albumin can be measured with a urine dipstick or a 24-hour urine collection to find out how much protein is “spilling” into the urine. Albumin levels can increase with heavy exercise, poor blood sugar control, urinary tract infections, and other illnesses.

Normal value: In a 24-hour urine sample, a normal level is less than 30 mg/day.
