Microalbuminuria

Microalbuminuria is a condition where low levels of albumin excretion occur. Having less than 30 mg/d excretions is considered normal, 30 to 300mg/d excretion indicates early kidney disease, and more than 300 mg/d excretion indicates more-advanced kidney disease. Microalbuminuria occurs due to increased leakage of albumin through the glomerular filtration barrier. ACE inhibitors and Angiotensin II receptor blockers might help to resolve the issue. Naturally, microalbuminuria is managed by losing weight and avoiding the intake of salt-rich foods.
