    00:00 So let's wrap up this video series.

    00:02 Albuminuria and proteinuria are terms used to describe abnormal levels of protein in the urine.

    00:09 Protein in the urine is an indicator of kidney damage.

    00:13 So the higher the protein, equals the greater the damage to the kidney.

    00:17 Patients with known risk factors for kidney disease should be tested regularly.

    00:23 Now stop for just a minute.

    00:24 What can you remember about those risk factors? Cool, if you couldn't pull them up remember to review your notes and used are spaced repetition questions to help you remember.

    00:36 Urine dipstick grading goes from negative 2/4 + and is impacted by urine concentration.

    00:42 Remember that's the stinky stuff that doesn't have as much water.

    00:46 A 24-hour urine collection for protein is more definitive than a urine dipstick, but it takes a lot longer.

    00:54 Thanks for watching a video with us.
