What is the course of the disease?
The course of the disease is largely dependent on the underlying cause. In the course of heavy physical strain or during pregnancy, the albumin value often normalises by itself. If the albumin value occurs within the framework of an underlying disease, the kidney would be increasingly damaged without treatment and the albumin value in the urine would rise steadily. Treatment can often slow down the progression of the underlying disease and slow down the damage to the kidneys.
