My Microalbumin is 58 is it reversible
Microalbumin level: My Microalbumin is 58 is... - Diabetes India
In UK it is sold in Asian shops. In South east Asia you can buy fresh ones in the markret. There are many things you can buy in market for food and medicine with no study. Passed on from family!!!
I am away from home. When I get back, I can google and let you have more info.
The inner tube of many plants are used in Asia.
People with diabetes have an increased risk of kidney damage. The "filters" in the kidneys, called nephrons, slowly thicken and become scarred over time. The nephrons begin to leak protein into the urine. This kidney damage can also happen years before any diabetes symptoms begin. In the early stages of kidney problems, blood tests that measure kidney function are usually normal.
If you have diabetes, you should have this test each year. The test checks for signs of early kidney problems.
If this test shows that you are starting to have a kidney problem, you can get treatment before the problem gets worse. People with severe kidney damage may need dialysis. They may eventually need a new kidney (kidney transplant).
Normally, albumin stays in the body. There is little or no albumin in the urine sample. Normal albumin levels in the urine are less than 30 mg/24 hours.
Several temporary factors can cause higher-than-normal urinary microalbumin results, such as:
* blood in your urine, or hematuria.
* a fever.
* recent vigorous exercise.
* a urinary tract infection.
High doses of thiamine -- vitamin B1 -- can reverse the onset of early diabetic kidney disease, according to new research. ... The results also showed 35% of patients with microalbuminuria saw a return to normal urinary albumin excretion after being treated with thiamine.
Your GP may recommend that you take medicines called angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors and angiotensin II receptor blockers (ARBs). These are often prescribed to help lower blood pressure and can also stop microalbuminuria getting worse.
The estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) is used to screen for and detect early kidney damage, to help diagnose chronic kidney disease (CKD), and to monitor kidney status. It is a calculation based on the results of a blood creatinine test along with other variables such as age, sex, and race (e.g., African-American, non-African American), depending on the equation used.
The National Kidney Disease Education Program, American Society of Nephrology, and the National Kidney Foundation all recommend that an eGFR be calculated every time a creatinine blood test is done. The creatinine test is ordered frequently as part of a routine comprehensive metabolic panel (CMP) or basic metabolic panel (BMP), or along with a blood urea nitrogen (BUN) test to evaluate the status of a person's kidneys.
Creatinine, along with eGFR, is often used to monitor people with known CKD and those with conditions such as diabetes and high blood pressure (hypertension) that may lead to kidney damage.
Other tests that may be done at the same time to help detect kidney damage and/or evaluate kidney function are:
Urine albumin (microalbumin) and albumin/creatinine ratio (ACR)—used to screen people with chronic conditions, such as diabetes and hypertension, that put them at an increased risk of developing kidney disease; increased levels of albumin in the urine may indicate kidney damage.
Urinalysis—may be used to help detect signs of kidney damage, such as the presence of blood or casts in the urine
Thank you Professor . Excellent explanation- summary . I get lipid profile, CMP, BMP and A1C, every 3 months and mostly Vitamin D3 and B12 checked every six months.
I thought you are in India -- ?? you refer to USA standards - procedures ?
Since there are NO data -to compare - for Indians in America - they give me both -
which one is appropriate for me ? African American is more conservative ( I think ).
Here are some my results - Blood drawn - September 11, 2019 10:39 am - Fasting
six months after my severe heart failure - for no reason.
LIPID -- Total Cholesterol 107 mg / dL, HDL 46, TG 66, LDL 46 ( calculated ),
Non- HDL 61.
BUN 20, CREATININE 0.98, eGFR ( Non-African ) - 76, eGFR - African 88.
BUN / Creatinine Ratio -- Non Applicable ?? WHY ??range 6 -22 ??
Albumin 3.8 ( I was referring to this -- not from Urine )
Globulin - 3.0
Albumin / Globulin Ration -- 1.3
TSH - 1.21
A1 C - 6.3 ( taking insulin - since after heart failure - March 2019 )
Calcium. Protein, sodium etc in normal range
Thanks for any comments --
What are the 3 readings you refer to? I see that one is eGFR. Could you expand Sr.Creatinine? What is the other one?
Are these three blood tests available in India? Please help. Thanks
