The urine protein to creatinine ratio
(P/C) as a predictor of 24-hour urine protein excretion in renal transplant patients.
Second, the model was further adjusted for CKD diagnosis (glomerular or nonglomerular) and urine protein to creatinine ratio (continuous).
For the stratified analysis, proteinuria was defined as a urine protein to creatinine ratio > 0.
For each sample, amounts of total protein, albumin, [beta]-2 microglobulin, creatinine and red globules of urine and also protein to creatinine ratio were gauged and calculated.
Also, after conversion of total protein unit to (mg/24h), urinary protein to creatinine ratio calculated utilizing equation of 300x(mg/dl) and division of obtained numbers to creatinine, based on (mg/24h) unit.
Furthermore, our limited data suggest that a random urine sample for protein to creatinine ratio, which would be a simpler method for both the patient and the laboratory, may be just as accurate as, if not better than, a 24-hour sample.
We defined excellent agreement in 2 ways: values whose protein to creatinine ratios were within 0.
Protein to creatinine ratio was high in all stages of CKD irrespective of the CKD stages by any of the 3 methods of estimating eGFR and values ranged from 1851 to 2240 mg/gm of creatinine.
Protein to creatinine ratio in our patients was found to be elevated in all patients in all stages of CKD.
The urine protein to creatinine ratio (P/) as a predictor of 24-hour urine protein excretion in renal transplant patients.
Quantitation of proteinuria by use of protein to creatinine ratios in single urine samples.
Luke recommended assessing the urinary protein to creatinine ratio
every 6-12 months.
