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.
