I just got my results back from the 24-hour urine test I did this past weekend, and the protein levels are pretty high up there. The creatinine tests are all WNL. Here are the protein results:
Protein, Total, 24 Hour Urine: 686.7 (reference range: <150mg/24h)
Protein/Creat, 24 Hour Urine: 952 (reference range: </=84mg/g creat)
My question is, exactly how high are these numbers? They seem REALLY up there to me, but I can't find anything online about where the cutoff is between "I've got some damage to my kidneys" and "holy crap, I need to get on dialysis tomorrow."
I have microalbuminuria (last random microalbumin level was 199), but NO damage whatsoever to my eyes (in fact, my opthamologist always says that if he didn't know me personally, he would NEVER know I was diabetic by my eyes).
I don't want to wait till Monday to call my dr to find out how bad these numbers are, so I'm hoping someone here will be able to help me out! Thanx!!
