Brief Answer: It is normal(noral values are less than 30) Detailed Answer: Hi and thank you so much for this query. Microalbumin is a protein that is found in urine. Values less than 30 are considered normal. Persons with values greater than 30 may signify damage t the kidneys caused by high blood pressure of diabetes. Yours is still normal and does not need any treatment at this time. I will recommend monitoring to see whether you need specific management in 3 or 6months. I hope this helps. I wish you well. Feel free to ask for ore information or clarifications if need be. Thanks for using our services. Dr.Ditah, MD
