Your lab slip should have the reference ranges for each result noted just to the side of your value. Can you list those?

Since I haven't had a reply from you, I will go ahead and post a preliminary answer.

Every lab has its own values for what it considers "normal" based on the equipment it uses. Having creatinine in the urine just means that the kidneys are working. Clearing creatinine is one of their jobs. Usually there is little to no albumin in the urine though. High levels of albumin can mean kidney failure. Yet some people will have small amounts of albumin at times. At my lab the normal creatinine/mincoalbumin level ranges from 0 to 16.9. Your lab will likely have its own value.
