Why would one need a 24 hour urine protein measurement?

Urine protein

Urine
When doctors are trying to determine how much protein a patient is losing in their urine, we often use a 24hour urine collection. If done correctly, this can be VERY accurate for determining both protein loss and renal function.

IgG 1710 ESR 29 ANA 1:160, Low vit. D, rib pain in lower ribs, dr said pneumonia antibody low. urine protein 24 hour was 65 blood prtein 7.8 Calcium9.8 WBC 7.06, Platlets 284 scared! only 26 yrs old?

See a rheumatologist

Vitamin_d
A single elevated ESR is not concerning but if it remains elevated for several months,there may be some underlying systemic inflammation that could indicate an early rheumatologic disease such as Sjögren's syndrome. High IgG and total protein can definitely be part of Sjögren's syndrome. ANA titer of 1:160 not concerning unless ANA panel antibodies are also positive like SSA and/or SSB antibody

Dr. Gurmukh Singh answered:

What is the formula to calculate urine protein creatinine ratio?

See below

Protein
The protein-to-creatinine ratio is a calculated value. The amount of urine protein and creatinine in a single specimen is measured in the lab. Each value is expressed in milligrams per deciliter. The amount of protein is divided by the amount of creatinine.

Dr. Ed Friedlander answered:

Urine Creatinine 24hour is 18.5 (7.1-17.7mmol/d) and my Urine Protein 24hour is 0.14 (<0.15g/d), I have IgM K monocloncal protein in B2 what is this?

Stop worrying

Creatinine
Reference ranges are where most people fall; there's no reason at all to get upset about a trivially high creatinine on a test that is done only to make a ratio with the albumin, which seems quite normal, thanks. My own guess is that your physician is eager to reassure you, and I'd urge you to accept this. There's much good in your life & future -- keep your eyes there.

Dr. Ed Friedlander answered:

Had LFT and my bilirubin is 1.7 and range is 0.2- 1.1 and in my urine protein traces are found, why is this so ?

Big picture

Urine
Several percent of humankind run a bilirubin in this range because of Gilbert's non-disease; the bilirubin is almost all indirect. If you've had previous chemical profiles and this has been present; it's probably Gilbert's, otherwise you'll get a workup, perhaps some meds you are taking. Trace protein in the urine is generally of no concern.

How to deal with positive urine protein?

Find cause.

Proteins
Can't really deal with it unless you know cause. Can't figure this one out at home. See your doc.
