Who's worried?: A protein reading of "trace" on a urinalysis is never worth worrying about. I trust you are not a diabetic or kidney patient. If you had a spot urine with a "high" (and that's more than "trace"), but your 24 hour urine protein was okay, you probably have orthostatic or transient proteinuria. If your physician isn't worrying over this, you shouldn't either.
