How do you calculate a spot protein to creatinine ratio?

The following formula is used to calculate the urine protein creatinine ratio calculator. 






  • Where PTCR is the Protein Creatinine Ratio
  • UP is the level of urine protein (mg/dl) 
  • UC is the level of urine creatinine (mg/dl) 

When should I call my doctor about a urine protein creatinine ratio test?

Only Call your healthcare provider if you have any questions about the results of your urine test. Your provider will explain the results and recommend follow-up tests or treatments.

How do I reduce the urine protein creatinine ratio?

6 Steps to lower the UPCR (urine protein creatinine ratio)

  1. Talk to your doctor to treat the underlying cause of the high percentage.
  2. Reduce your salt intake.
  3. Reduce the amount of protein you consume.
  4. Don't overdose on non-steroid anti-inflammatory drugs, like ibuprofen or ketoprofen.
  5. Quit smoking.
  6. Minimize alcohol consumption.

What is a normal BUN creatinine ratio?

  • The ideal ratio of BUN to creatinine falls between 10-to-1 and 20-to-1.
  • Having a ratio above this range could mean you may not be getting enough blood flow to your kidneys, and could have conditions such as congestive heart failure, dehydration, or gastrointestinal bleeding.

How to calculate BUN Creatinine Ratio?

You can calculate BUN Creatinine Ratio by this formula.

BUN Creatinine Ratio = BUN / Creatinine

How do I calculate the BUN-to-creatinine ratio?

To calculate the bun creatinine ratio:

  • Determine the patient's blood urea nitrogen (BUN) and serum creatinine levels.
  • Make sure the units are the same – usually mg/dL.
  • Divide BUN by serum creatinine to obtain the BUN creatinine ratio.

What is a good testosterone to estradiol ratio?

Testosterone To Estradiol Ratio considered good as long as the individual hormone levels are within normal ranges:

Testosterone (T)

300-1000 ng/dL (10-35 nmol/L)

Estradiol (E2)

14-55 pg/mL (50-200 pmol/L)

How do I calculate the testosterone to estradiol ratio?

  1. Enter Testosterone Value (ng /dL)
  2. Enter Estradiol Value (pg/ dL)
  3. Check the Testosterone To Estradiol Ratio

Can estradiol be converted into testosterone?

  • No. Testosterone can be converted into estradiol through the aromatase enzyme if it doesn't bind to any androgen receptor
  • However, this does not work the other way around.
