Albumin to Creatinine Ratio

What does it mean if a patient’s albumin to creatinine ratio is 10,526 mg/g, with a microalbumin of 20,000 mg/L after dilution and creatinine of 190 mg/dL? The patient has overall swelling, but no diabetes and no kidney problems. Most respondents agree that this, along with the patient’s very high urinary proteins, is a sign of macroalbuminuria/proteinuria. One respondent was skeptical about the patient not having kidney problems with these results, but another suggested that the cause might be post-renal.
