The blood is first filtered by the kidneys, and the composition of the resulting fluid is then altered depending on the body's needs. It is composed of mostly water, and breakdown products from blood cells impart ...Read more

Will one always have protein in urine if you one is a diabetic?

Will one always have protein in urine if you one is a diabetic?

Not necessarily so: Even healthy people have protein in urine, at times--orthostatic proteinuria, especially in children (protein spilled in urine during active hours). Being a diabetic put u at higher risk for kidney disease and excess protein in urine is a marker for disease. There meds to reduce this. Keep diabetes, blood pressure, cholesterol under control. Eat well, exercise, and see doc regularly. Good luck. ...Read more

I read one symptom of foam/bubbles formed in urine maybe cause of protein in urine. Will they be formed even if one stands or sits and urinates!

I read one symptom of foam/bubbles formed in urine maybe cause of protein in urine. Will they be formed even if one stands or sits and urinates!

Normal causes: Of bubbles in urine include dehydrated concentrated urine and rapid/forceful urination (from holding too long) from any position! Abnormal causes include the protein in the urine you suggest and can come from protein drinks/supplements, high protein meal, or kidney dysfunction. Bacteria from an infection can produce a gas making bubbles. Rare instances can be watched; if recurrent, seek eval ...Read more

How accurate are urine dip sticks? Did one at Dr office and showed protein in urine. Can it mean uti? Dr taking it to lab for culture.

How accurate are urine dip sticks? Did one at Dr office and showed protein in urine. Can it mean uti? Dr taking it to lab for culture.

Quite accurate: Trace protein in the urine is never worrisome by itself. +1 may be worth a workup. +2 is worth investigating. The usual cause is orthostatic proteinuria -- if you're well otherwise, see if your first-voided morning specimen is free of protein, and if it is, you know you're someone who gets proteinuria from standing up -- no big deal. Best wishes. ...Read more

What is the norm in early signs of kidney disease or damage, is it creatnine in blood or is it protein in urine? Which one usually happens first?

What is the norm in early signs of kidney disease or damage, is it creatnine in blood or is it protein in urine? Which one usually happens first?

Either: Both urine protein and serum creatinine are important. More important are the common causes of kidney disease, e.e., high blood pressure, and diabetes. See this site for more info.

I had urinalysis done and 30 plus protein is in urine and back pain. What could cause protein in urine? Kidney failure?

Many things: This test detects normal amounts of albumin frequently as 30 mg/dl. I suggest a first morning void, if elevated then check a protein/creatinine ratio. Nephrology consultation may be needed, Causes, glomerulonephritis, interstitial disease, myeloma, infectin, nephrotic syndrome, diabetes, hypertension.

Hi, Are steroids given to treat CKD. Any medicine if one's cretanine goes up along with protein in urine. Thanks.

Hi, Are steroids given to treat CKD. Any medicine if one's cretanine goes up along with protein in urine. Thanks.

Yes depends on diagn: Steroids help most childhood causes of nephrotic syndrome (heavy protein in urine), but adults are more problematic. Usually kidney biopsy and consultation with nephrologist is necessary to select who will be a candidate for steroids. Requires careful monitoring. ...Read more

I had a medical examination few days ago, protein in urine was +1, what that means?

We'll find out: Your physician knows how to follow this up knowing about your overall health and life.

Other proteinuria can be more worrisome if persistent. ...Read more

Dr my age is 23 and weight is 89 kgs and I am diabetic and hb1ac : 6.1 % PROTEIN IN URINE : 1+ (30/mg/dl) is there any danger. Please help me dr?

Dr my age is 23 and weight is 89 kgs and I am diabetic and hb1ac : 6.1 % PROTEIN IN URINE : 1+ (30/mg/dl) is there any danger. Please help me dr?

Diabetic nephropathy: We need height in order to determine if weight is appropriate (http://www. Nhlbi. Nih. Gov/health/educational/lose_wt/BMI/bmicalc. Htm). Your HbA1c, which indicates sugar control over last 3mo, is excellent. Protein in urine is worrisome. Ask for urine microalbumin:Creatinine ratio test to determine extent of damage if any (normal less than 30). Calculate eGFR from blood creatinine - should be 60+. ...Read more

What does trace of protein in urine represent?

Kidney defect: Normal kidneys usually retain all protein so no protein ends up in the urine. If the membranes in the kidney go through damage or inflammation, it may become leaky and protein will show up in the urine. Infection and inflammation can disrupt the membrane. This can be reversible or irreversible. See your doctor for further work-up. ...Read more

What is the cause of protein in urine usually?

Many causes.: Renal disease from causes like diabetes, sle, and others accounts for the major reasons for protein in the urine. Protein should not be in the urine. The kidney basement membrane is supposed to keep it out. If it isn't intact, protein leaks out. In burns, accidents, etc., things like myoglobin leak out, and in poststrep. Glomerulonephritis, anythhing can leak out, but these resolve with rx.. ...Read more
