albuminuria

Albumin in the urine. This usually indicates kidney disease such as GLOMERULONEPHRITIS or the NEPHROTIC SYNDROME. In orthostatic albuminuria, albumin is present only after the person has stood for a long time and is absent from the early morning urine. This is not considered dangerous.

proteinuria

; albuminuria the presence of protein (albumin) in urine due to renal dysfunction, e.g. hypertension, renal infection; early-stage renal failure (characteristic of diabetic nephropathy)

albuminuria (albyōō´minyōō´rēə),

n (hyperproteinuria, proteinuria, proteuria), the presence of clinically detectable amounts of protein in the urine. Usually less than 100 mg/24 hr may be found normally by special methods. The usual protein is albumin, although globulins, Bence Jones protein, and fibrinogen may be present and may exceed the amount of albumin. The condition may be caused by prerenal or renal disease or by inflammation of the urinary tract.

albuminuria

the presence in the urine of serum albumin. It indicates renal dysfunction and occurs in primary renal failure (glomerular) and congestive heart failure. There may be a sufficient loss to cause hypoalbuminemia.

Gutierrez and colleagues reinforces that even mild elevations in urine ACR are associated with increased CVD risk, even though this level of albuminuria will have no meaningful systemic effects," they said, adding that differentiating between low normal (less than 10 mg/g) and high normal (10-30 mg/g) urinary ACR may help with cardiovascular risk stratification, particularly in black individuals, perhaps leading to preventive efforts and improved monitoring.
The findings suggest a graded increase in the risk of VTE in association with higher levels of albuminuria and, to a lesser extent, reduced eGFR.
The albuminuria status was divided as follows: (i) normoalbuminuric: albumin excretion rate (AER)(less then)30mg/24h; (ii) microalbuminuric: AER between 30-300 mg/24h; (iii) overt albuminuric: AER(greater then)300 mg/24h.
However, routine laboratory tests do not detect these small amounts of albuminuria unless it is in excess of 300 mg/day, that is distinctly abnormal, yet cannot be detected by routine means.
