Urologist: The chloride levels are elevated, are nonspecific but may indicate slight dehydration. Urine protein is borderline high, but I would be interested in knowing what a microscopic examination of your urine sediment would reveal. I recommend a consultation with a urologist to assess the renal cysts and mild proteinuria. Benign cysts of the kidneys are common and may cause microscopic blood.
