What does trace of protein in urine represent?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Kidney defect: Normal kidneys usually retain all protein so no protein ends up in the urine. If the membranes in the kidney go through damage or inflammation, it may become leaky and protein will show up in the urine. Infection and inflammation can disrupt the membrane. This can be reversible or irreversible. See your doctor for further work-up.
