Introduction & Objectives: Diagnosis of stress often requires measurements of expensive, invasive and
cumbersome stress markers. Previous studies have reported correlation of protein: creatinine ratio with
anxiety and depression. The present research was designed to explore the performance of urinary protein
and microalbumin or both as diagnostic aid for stress.
Materials and Methods: The present research was an OPD/IPD based case control research where 120
patients, without any other obvious illness, and 106 healthy controls, were assessed for stress (by PSLE) .
Urinary protein and creatinine were estimated by Vitros 5.1 fusion analyzer. S tatistical package for social
sciences version 21.0 (SPSS v 21.0) was used for data analysis.
Results: A significant correlation was observed between PCR, ACR and PSLE (p<0> Interpretation & Conclusion: The study showed significant correlation between PSLE and urinary
protein and microalbuminuria in comparison to controls.

Keywords: Albumin, ACR, Creatinine, Protein, PCR, PSLE, Stress.
