Abstract

The aim of the present study is to (i) study correlation between the 24 hours urinary protein and urine protein creatinine ratio of the single random urinary sample (ii) know if the spot urine and protein creatiinine ratio will provide accurate quantification of proteinuria in hypertensive pregnant women. Observational study carried out for two years at Govt. Lady Goschen Hospital, OBG Department, Mangalore from August 2007-2009 on 50 pregnant patients with gestational hypertension and preeclampsia. The correlation between protein/creatinine ratio in random urine specimens and urinary protein excretion in 24 hour collection were analyzed. The study demonstrated a good Correlation between 24 hours urine protein and protein creatinine ratio in random urine. The values were very significant at p<0.001. The value of protein/creatinine ratio in single urine sample in more accurate since it avoids collection errors. The protein/creatinine ratio in spot urine samples could be used as an alternative to urine protein excretion in 24 hours collection in hypertensive in pregnant women.
