Table 1 New definitions of total proteinuria and albuminuria [12].

From: Renal protection in diabetes: lessons from ONTARGET®

Assay Normal Low High (previously termed microalbuminuria) Very high (previously termed macroalbuminuria)
24-hour excretion (mg/24 hours) < 10 10-29 30-300 >300
Spot UACR (mg/g)* < 10 10-29 30-300 (males,17-250; females,25-355) >300 (males, >250; females >355)
  1. UACR, urinary albumin/creatine ratio.
  2. Correspondence among terms is inexact; therefore, threshold levels are not consistent.
  3. *For conversion of UACR expressed as mg/mmol, multiply by 0.113.
