I am a diabetic patient. Two years ago my urine was milky. My weight has been reduced 18kg. In my 24 urine test for several times, urine protein was 2gm to 19gm. But my blood creatinine is always in normal range. My blood protein and globulin slightly low. Chyle was also found in urine test. After treatment, 24 urine protein reduced to 500mg. Weight is constant now for 6months, I am taking insulin, zorem 5, echosprin75, alphusind, tonact10 which is dropped now, zissikar. I have not taken any other medicine at all. My blood protein and globulin and other blood test are normal. I have no edema nor swelling, no pain. I am feeling weak only. Steroid was not taken by me. In urine routine test for several times there was no abnormal result. Protein is absent. But in 24 urine test protein is 500mg. Please advice me.
My urine protein 722mg/l, urine creatine 90.7 mg/dl, urine p/c ratio 0.8. The blood pressure is more. Can you tell me, is this a kidney problem?
The urine protein that you mention is abnormal. A normal urine protein to creatinine ratio is less than 0.2 mg per mg of creatinine. Hence, 0.8 is an abnormal result. 16 more words
I have recently been diagnosed with kidney disease. My estimated GFR is 26 from a blood sample. I also had a 24 hr. urine sample analysis, and my corrected creatinine clearance rate (corrected using my BSA) is 52.4 ml/min/1.73m2. Why are these two numbers different?
I do not know. Urine collections for 24 hours are very unreliable and we have generally stopped performing them because of inconsistency in collecting the urine and performing the testing. 12 more words
What does 42.6 mean in a urine test: creatinine 1.5, urine creatinine 230.2, microalbumin 98.2, microalb/creat ratio 42.6. These were results on my blood work. What does it mean?
You appear to have an increased amount of albumin in your urine and your creatinine blood test may be abnormal. I cannot make any other observations or diagnosis. 14 more words

My kidney function has been at 30% for the past 2 years. I am 56, female & diabetic with a A1C of 7.1 They have always said my CKD is due to diabetes. My question is should I ask for a scan or kidney biopsy to make sure?
The diagnosis of diabetic kidney disease does not require a kidney biopsy under most circumstances. If you have diabetes and if you have protein in your urine and if the rest of your physical and laboratory findings are consistent, most nephrologists and primary care physicians can make a diagnosis of diabetic kidney disease (diabetic nephropathy) based on clinical criteria without a kidney biopsy. 17 more words
