Hi there,

Do you have kidney disease or any kidney dysfunction?

High albumin in your urine is usually from kidney disease associated with diabetes.

Are you saying that your albumin was 42 and now is 204?

It seems like your kidney function might be getting worse.

How you had recent bloodwork?

Expert:  Dr. Scott replied 9 months ago.

You may also want to start medication to help prevent further kidney damage.

Albumin in urine can be associated with many different medical problems.

You may want to seek treatment sooner than later.

You should have a 24 hour urine study done.

You also need bloodwork.

You may want to get a kidney ultrasound just to make sure there's nothing in the kidney that could be causing worsening albuminuira.

I hope this helps.

Let me know if you have additional questions.

I am here to help and answer questions.
