Description

Urine Protein and Creatinine Ratio Test (Spot Urine Test)

Also called as Urine PCR test, Urine protein/creatinine spot test.

What is the urine protein and creatinine ratio test?

Urine protein and creatinine ratio test is done to screen for excess protein in the urine, to help evaluate and monitor kidney function, and to detect kidney damage.

Why urine protein and creatinine ratio test advised?

As part of a routine physical, often as part of a urinalysis. Urine protein and creatinine ratio test have traditionally been used as important indicators of kidney disease and as a follow-up testing for monitoring the disease. However, albumin to creatinine ratio (Microalbumin) is now the preferred testing for these purposes.

When urine protein and creatinine ratio test advised?

Urine protein testing is used to detect excess protein in the urine (proteinuria). A semi-quantitative test such as a dipstick urine protein may screen for protein in the urine as part of a routine urinalysis.

A urine protein and creatinine ratio test may screen for, help evaluate, and monitor kidney function and to help detect and diagnose early kidney damage and/or disease. However, the test can also help screen for several other conditions that can cause proteinuria.

If slight to moderate amounts of protein are detected, then a repeat urinalysis and dipstick protein may be performed at a later time to see if there is still protein in the urine or if it has become undetectable

Urine protein and creatinine ratio test result

A positive urine protein and creatinine test tells your doctor that protein is present in your urine, but it does not show which types are present or the cause of the proteinuria. When investigating the reason, your doctor may advise additional laboratory tests, such as:

  • Advanced Metabolic panel – includes tests such as BUN, creatinine, albumin and total protein, which help evaluate kidney and liver function
  • Complete urinalysis – if a condition such as urinary tract infection is also suspected
  • Serum and urine protein electrophoresis test to determine which proteins are being released into the urine and in what quantities; this is especially true if your doctor suspects abnormal monoclonal protein production, such as with multiple myeloma or lymphoma.

If kidney disease or damage is suspected, your doctor may also advise imaging scans (ultrasonography or CT scan) to evaluate the appearance of your kidneys.
