You asked for the units of measurement. The report reads as follows:

Microalbumin R UR. H 6.3. (0-2.0). MG/DL
Creat R UR. 58.0. MG/DL
Microalbumin CRT Ratio. H. 109. (0-30). MG/G)

Random Microalbumin interp
micro 30 to 300 MG/G
Macro greater than 300 MG/ G
I hope this gives you the information you needed to answer my question.
Would these test results indicate possible kidney damage?

Brief Answer:
Need further investigation

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for the values.

Yes, protein in the urine in the amounts mentioned above do indicate kidney damage.

You may have to get some more investigations to ascertain the same like Renal function test which includes serum creatinine, serum urea, blood urea nitrogen etc.

If all of these test results are out of range then a kidney biopsy to know the histopathology may be needed.
