Solution

The correct option is C Damage to the Malpighian corpuscles
The normal urinary excretion of albumin is less than 30 mg/day. An increase in urinary albumin excretion is indicative of increased permeability of the filtering cells of the kidney in the glomerulus, which is a part of Malpighian corpuscle of the kidney. Albuminuria is the presence of albumin in the urea.
So, the correct answer is option C.
