Default Blood Results/kidney function

Hello All,

I got some blood results back & it wasn't exactly what I was hoping for :/ Despite cutting out hundreds of carbs from my diet, my fasting rose 10-15 pts this year... (Good news: I've stopped spikes!) Time to make some more adjustments.

Anyways, looking for a little insight into urine tests. I got the following results back:
Microalbumin UR: 11.4
Creatine, UR 220.0 (in normal range)
Albumin/Creat. Ratio, UR 51.4

Also:
LDL Cholestral: 95

My doctor didn't say anything to me. But from what I can see online. These look high for a diabetic. If anyone could shed some light on how bad is bad, I would be very grateful! I'm going to call my doctor as well, but I value the opinions here too. Thanks!

Protein in the urine (proteinuria) is not normal. It indicates diabetes, high blood pressure, or lupus. You numbers are not bad.
In my opinion your numbers very acceptable. My microalbumin has been over 2000 which caused me massive anxiety attacks.

Hi,

Thanks so much for your reply. I spoke with my dr. as well who said problems start happening in the 100s so I guess I'm okay for now. I just hate the fix-it approach in the US, rather than the prevent-it approach. I hope you solved your high #s. That's very scary.
