What causes microalbumin level of 33 in urine?

I am prediabetic and my blood pressure has been less than 120/80 in the last year. I tested for microalbumin 2.5 months ago and it was 33. I also am taking immipramine 25 mg for a long time. Could there be a mistake in my test and what is the reason for microalbumin to be 33

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

* As per the standard international criteria below 30 is the normal level of albumin in urine.
* A level of 33 is not of panic, I recommend to drink plenty of liquids, take a repeat test after 1 week and consult again back.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

I am a 21 year old white female who weighs 115 pounds and I m 5 4 . I applied for a life insurance policy and they high amounts of microalbumin in my urine. I went to my physician where I have had two other urine tests done. The first test done 11/18/2010 results found my microalbumin levels at 45.3 ( and should be between 0-17 ug/mL) and the second test done 12/01/2010 my microalbumin was 70.8. Other than my vitamin d level being 16 and should be at least 100, they found nothing else and nothing in my urine (no creatine,etc.). What should I do and what could be the cause?

Just had Microalbumin Urine Random test. I had a heavy menstrual flow at the time & informed the tech, she told me it wouldn t affect it but if my doctor was concerned about results to let him know. The test also was not a clean catch or mid-stream test. When the results came back, my blood test levels for kidney function & my urine creatine levels were good, but my Microalbumin Urine level was 489 with 0.0-20.0 being normal. My doctor is redoing the test in a month. Can menstrual blood contamination alter the results that much?

Hello, about 13 days ago I drank alot of alcochol and I have been dizzy with a slight headache since then. I have been to the doctor he said it is probably liver intoxication, that it will go away, that was a week ago. I did a bunch of blood tests everything seems normal accept my hep B anti hps was 93. This happened about 2 months ago as well, the doc gave me, b6 dramin (portuguese), which I took for a week and the dizzyness went away. Any clue what it could be? Is this normal because of alcohol consumption? I have drank alot in the past years, never had this happen before.
