UACR testing is used to detect kidney damage by measuring the ratio of albumin to creatinine in the urine1
Rising UACR levels are an indicator of worsening kidney damage and a predictor of more rapid CKD progression1
According to KDIGO, a UACR level above 300 mg/g is very high and warrants particular attention1
Regular UACR testing is encouraged to assess and identify CKD progression early1,4
