Dr. Raj Singh answered

Proteinuria: presence of protein in the urine is usually suggestive of underlying kidney disease. When the kidney filters get damaged the protein from blood tends to leak into the urine and causes further damage. most common causes are diabetes and high blood pressure. Please make appointment to see a kidney specialist.
