|Comment||i think the answer had absolutely nothing to do with my question! And the answer they did give said something about the protein and albumin in the urine has nothing to do with dialysis! BS! Any dr will tell you that high amounts of protein and albumin in the urine is an indication of KIDNEY DISEASE, WHICH CAN LEAD TO DIALYSIS ONCE IT'S HIGH ENOUGH! So please don't sit there and say that a 4200 micro albumin/creatine ratio test is no 'direct' relation to dialysis. This fellow def needs more training. Thanks.|
