The measurement of the form will initially be: mg/dL - a concentration. Then the total protein excretion will be calculated from the total volume of urine. The important result will be the protein per 24 hours - mg/24 hours.

what units do they use for 24-hour catch?

Is the 24-hour proteinuria test 300 mg/24 hours regardless of volume? Or is it corrected for output, i.e. 300 mg/dL?

I guess I should say, are the important units hours or output?
