How much?: 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, elevated protein in urine is a matter of concern and more so if you are diabetic and/or hypertensive. Wish you good health!
