RepeatDiscussWithMD: Low or trace urine protein can be normal in some young people.But it can also be indicator of early stage kidney disease in patients with type2 diabetes and hypertension.Your doctor can coreelate your urine protein with rest of your health and medical condition.Sometimes it is temporary and that is why if there is no other cause for it,we suggest to repeat it.We don't know how old you are
