Proteinuria evaluation is important for the differential diagnosis of renal disease and the assessment of prognosis and response to therapy. Qualitative proteinuria correlates poorly with quantitative 24-hour protein levels because of hydration and methodologic problems associated with observer error. The authors automated quantitative urinary protein and osmolality measurements and evaluated whether a urinary protein-osmolality ratio (mg/L/mOsm/kg) in the random urinalysis predicts the 24-hour… CONTINUE READING
