Testing for amyloidosis. Two 24-hr urine protein labs both showed protein 6.3mg/dl. 1st test was 140mg/24hrs from volume of 2225ml of pee. 2nd test was 129.2mg/24hrs from 2050ml pee. Both in range, but if peed more would have been over limit. Worry?

If you had consumed more fluids and made more urine, the total amount of protein would be the same even tho there was more urine. Example: if you have a cup of salt water and add more water to it, the water will be less salty but the total amount of salt will stay the same. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
