Microalbumin

MACRMicroalbumin is the quantification of small amounts of albumin, a serum protein, in urine that can be used to identify microvascular endothelial dysfunction. The presence of small amounts of albumin in the urine may suggest the presence of systemic endothelial dysfunction – an early indicator of heart disease. This test is more sensitive than a standard dipstick test routinely performed in an office setting.
