microalbuminiuria readings

30-300mg albumin /24 hours

20-200microgram/min

30-300mg albumin/gram creatinine

men 0.9mgdL to 1.3 mg/dl

women 0.8 to 1 mg/dl

children 0.5 ro 1 mg/dl

glomerular disease > glomerular protein leak overwhelms reabsorption > loss of albumin > low plasma oncotic pressure > Edma
