Albumin is the main protein that is usually located in the blood, but when the kidneys are functioning well, virtually no albumin is found in the urine. When the blood flows into balanced kidneys it flushes excess products and provides the items that the body requires, such as protein. Our study aimed to assess and standardize the spot (random) urinary albumin creatinine ratio (UACR) method for the proteinuria assessment. A urine albumin test (formerly known as microalbumin) detects and measures the amount of albumin in the urine for kidney disease checking. Based on spot urine albumin, 50 percent of patients had micro albuminuria and 40 % had normal urine albumin levels and remaining had macroalbuminuria. Mean urine albumin levels were 107.38 mg/dl.
