Just watch & see...: Your one-time reported difference in urine & blood laboratory findings should not incite worry, just just watch, wait, see, & repeat them in 3 months as needed depending clinical profile may evolve. And if pain in left flank is really from left kidney remains to be seen, but detailed history + physical exam + timely imaging studies such as CT scan or US will help define the myth behind concerns.
