Kidney Disease – 5 Stages and Life Expectancy

Urine Albumin to Creatinine Ratio

Another simple test to determine the stage of kidney disease is the urine albumin to creatinine ratio. The main goal is to look for the possible leakage of protein in the urine, a condition also known as proteinuria or albuminuria. In most cases, this is a typical symptom of kidney disease. By combining the results of the GFR and ACR ratio, a doctor would predict the progress and stage of your condition. Also, they can help find out the presence of any other health issues caused by abnormalities or damages in your kidneys. [2]
