Interpretation of the Results

Results are interpreted as positive, borderline, negative and invalid.

Positive:

  • Urine contains more than 20 μg/ml of albumin.
  • A positive result may also be due to a temporary change in your physiological state.
  • Important: Intensive physical activity, fever, severe infection or pregnancy can increase albumin concentration in the urine.
  • We recommend you repeat testing several days later. If the positive result repeats, consult your doctor for further examination.

Borderline:

  • Urine contains between 10 μg/ml and 20 μg/ml of albumin.
  • We recommend you control your urine albumin level from time to time.

Negative:

  • Urine contains less than 10 μg/ml of albumin.

Invalid: Invalid result appears if you do not carefully follow instructions for use. Please take a photo of such a test result and contact us at help@patris-health.com

When to get tested for albumin in the urine?
