re: why is 82043 coded with 82570

82043 Albumin; urine, microalbumin, quantitative

82570 Creatinine; other source

Urinary microalbumin is the quantification of small amounts of albumin, a serum protein, in urine that can be used to identify microvascular endothelial dysfunction.

The urinary microalbumin/creatinine ratio may be performed on individuals with type 1 or type 2 diabetes, hypertension, a family history of chronic kidney disease, those at intermediate (10-20%) risk for CVD or those with known vascular disease.
