I thought I had a reasonable understanding of proteinuria, CKD, etc. But my latest test results (which I view online, will not see kidney doctor for another week) have confused the heck out of me. Stats:69 year old white male, only one kidney (other removed in July of 2017), blood pressure under control. So my confusion? My Urine protein was reported as negative in the urine test. My microalbumin was report as .5. This lab says anything below 3.0 is normal. So to me this indicates no type of protein outside the normal range was found. Good news, right? BUT, my Albumin/Creatinine Ratio (which is considered a most important test) was 31.1. This lab says the less than 30 is normal. 31.1 is above normal! Worse, is this measurement is getting progressively worse for me. In January 2018 it was 8.7. In July of 2018 it had climbed to 22.7. Now 6 months later it has climbed again to 31.1 (above normal). YET my protein and albumin measurements are excellent!!
