Here are some...: Usually, proteinuria suggests the existence of certain kidney parenchymal diseases such as glomerulonephritis, pyelonephritis, diabetic/hypertensive nephropathy, drug-induced, etc. But, a trace of protein in urine may occur sporadically with no clinical significance. More? Ask you doc or contact me at www.Healthtap.com/dr-Lin with RQPWJC to log in for appointments, preferably by audio/video .
