Question 64: Was proteinuria detected? (excluding microalbuminuria)

Proteinuria, also known as albuminuria, is excess protein in the urine and may be a sign of kidney disease. Proteinuria may be assessed by 24-hour urine collection or by a dipstick analysis. A value of > 150 mg by 24-hour urine collection or ‘positive’ by a dipstick analysis is indicative of proteinuria.

Indicate if proteinuria was detected (excluding microalbuminuria) in the current reporting period.

Report Yes if the proteinuria was:

  • > 150 mg by 24-hour urine collection or
  • ‘Positive’ or trace, 1+, 2+, 3+, or 4+ result by urine dipstick analysis.

Report No if the proteinuria was:

  • ≤ 150 mg (by 24-hour urine collection) or
  • ‘Negative’ result (by urine dipstick analysis)

If proteinuria was assessed multiple times during the reporting period, report based on the results of the most recent assessment.

If proteinuria was not assessed during the current reporting period, select Not done.

Questions 65 – 66: Serum creatinine

Creatinine is a normal metabolic waste that is primarily filtered from the blood by the kidneys and then excreted in the urine. Since it is generally produced at a constant rate, the clearance rate and the serum level are widely used as indicators of kidney function.

Indicate if the serum creatinine is known. If Known, report the most recent serum creatinine value available in the current reporting period and specify the units of measurement.
