Microalbuminuria ( Albumin in Urine ) in pregnancy is to be evaluated for Preeclampsia, Gestational Diabetes, Kidney Disorders, Impending Vascular disorders etc. Albumin/Creatinine ratio of the random urine sample twice is the most important and specific screening test to detect the pre eclampsia. Albumin in Urine is one of the most common causes of premature delivery and IUGR of the fetus, According to the American Diabetes Association, post lunch values of 140-199 mg/dL is considered to be prediabetes. We recommend she gets herself completely evaluated during this pregnancy for Gestational Diabetes, Pre eclampsia and Hypertension by the treating Obstetrician.
