Physical exercise during the previous 24 hours can cause a transient elevation in microalbumin. Other variables, including infection, fever, congestive heart failure, marked hyperglycemia, and marked hypertension, can result in increased microalbumin levels.
Preparation: You will be asked to provide a urine specimen at the Patient Service Center. At the Patient Service Center, a technician will provide you with a container and a private lavoratory for the collection.
