what are the causes of extremely high levels of proteins in urine?

1 doctor answer
Dr. George Klauber
Specializes in Pediatric Urology
Diabetes, high BP: Can also be caused by immune kidney disease like glomerulonephritis, kidney infections, medications or toxins. Best evaluated by nephrologist, unless you have diabetes or high blood pressure which is being actively treated. Good luck.
