Microalbumin (Microalbumin)

Under normal physiological conditions very little albumin is present in urine. Approximately 99% of the filtered albumin is reabsorbed in the proximal tubule. In pathological conditions when glomerular capillary wall permeability and/or filtration rate increase, albumin excretion along with other macromolecules in urine also increases. Detection of increased urinary albumin excretion is of particular importance in the study of incipient renal disease.
