Can walking 8+ hours a day cause protein in urine plus working in the heat and only drinking 2 bottles of water at work if that?

Yes: What you described can cause protein to appear in urine, however, even though it may be the explanation other disorders associated with protein in urine need to be excluded and you may wish to consult with a nephrologist. Drink enough water daily so that your urine is mostly colorless. Wish you good health.
