Human Serum Albumin Molecule

In the healthy kidney, albumin's size and negative electric charge exclude it from excretion in the glomerulus. This is not always the case, as in some diseases including diabetic nephropathy, a major complication of uncontrolled diabetes in which proteins can cross the glomerulus. The lost albumin can be detected by a simple urine test.[18] Depending on the amount of albumin lost, a patient may have normal renal function, microalbuminuria, or albuminuria.
