Objectives: To evaluate the significance of the urine protein to creatinine value in hypertensive pregnant patients.
Design: This is a single group comparison study of a single group of 240 subjects.
Setting: This study was conducted in the Department of OBG, JIPMER, Pondicherry, a tertiary care hospital south India, from April 2010 to march 2013.
Materials and Methods: Morning urine sample was sent for urine protein and creatinine value. Rest of the 24 hour urine collected and tested for 24-hour urine protein value.
Main Outcome Measures: The spot urine protein to creatinine value significantly correlates with 24-hour urine protein value. (r=0.98; P<0>
Results: The urine protein to creatinine value for significant proteinuria was 0.285.
Conclusion: The urine protein to creatinine value can be used as an alternative to 24 hour urine protein for clinical purposes.

Keywords: Protein to creatinine value, Hypertension in pregnancy.
