    ACR is the abbreviation for Albumin Creatinine Ratio. It’s a measure of how well your kidneys are functioning. For your results you should’ve got a number back which is your ACR in mg/mmol

    I wasn’t told the amount, the receptionist at the doctors couldn’t pronounce the issue she had to spell it, she didn’t have a clue

    Ring them up and ask for a print out. The receptionist isn't qualified to understand the results. The ratio should be under 3mg/mol, or at least it is for females according to my lab report. If you get the print out it will tell you what the normal standard range is.
