Second opinion: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Talk to the doctor who ordered the tests. Having said that, blood and protein in urine should be investigated. If you are not comfortable with your current doctor you should consult a nephrologist.
