Need clarification: We need a lot more information on the type of protein, on the cell count, Cass, and other substance seen in the urine. You need to have the urine repeated, best first thing in the morning when your hydration allows a concentrated urine. You also need some blood testing to clarify and possibly further analysis. Your physician may have to send you to a nephrologist. ...Read more
My daughter is 12, she had a 24 hour urine sample tested and it showed her proteins to be 195, should be 150, what does this mean?, is this bad?
See below: It depends on her activity during the time that the urine was collected. Vigorous activity increases the protein excreted in urine. That is a very modest increase in the amount of protein in urine. If a blood test of kidney function (serum creatinine) is normal, and she is otherwise normal, I would suggest doing nothing except repeating the test in 6 months. ...Read more
After a 24 hour urine test, testing for preeclamsia my protein level was 621. How serious is this? What this tell you about my state of preeclamsia?
Preeclampsia: The cut-off for protein in urine in pregnancy is 300 mg; 621 mg is a little elevated, but still below one gram, which is 1000 mg, for example. In severe cases several grams of protein can be spilled in urine. To gauge the severity of the preeclampsia or to determine if there is toxemia of pregnancy, other factors are important like blood pressure, liver enzymes, number of platelets. ...Read more
What about it?: 24 hour urine collection for protein is one test for renal disease. To accurately collect the specimen, go pee in the bathroom at a given time in the morning, say 8 am. Then all day pee in the jug given to you and the following morning pee in the jug at 8 am whether you feel like peeing or not. That would ensure accurate 24 hour specimen. ...Read more
Two different things: Clean midstream catch is a term used for obtaining urine that is after the stream has started. It's usually a one time catch, or serial one time catches. The 24 hour urine sample requires you to collect all urine and 24 hours. That's used to determine how much of a substance has been peed out over 24 hours, and dividing it by the milligrams that was collected from what was ingested. ...Read more
Urinalysis, trace of protein. Creatinine clearence was good, even 24 hour protein, but spot urine had high protein value. Cause?
My pcp did urinalysis for frequent urination then ordered a 24 hour urine collection. Is this likely due 2 too much protein he found in my urine?
The presence of proteinuria (p) is usually found on a urine analysis. To quantify how much p you have, a 24 hour urine collection is done.
At the same time, your renal function also be assessed. If you have significant p, blood work will be ordered to see if a diagnosis of the cause of your p can be found. The causes of proteinuria are varied, with the most common one being diabetes. Good luck. ...Read more
I have high levels of protein in urine from 24 hour urine collection. I have been referred to nephrologist. What can you expect on an initial visit?

You will be asked to collect a 24 hour urine collection for creatinine clearance and protein, to see at level your kidneys work and to quantify the amount of protein in your urine/24 hours. A renal ultrasound will be ordered. Depending on the urine results, more blood tests may be ordered. ...Read more

Mod prot in urine: There are two main components to kidney disease, which predict progression & treatment. One is function or the stage 1-5 with one nl and 5 severe & on or close to dialysis. Stage 2 in G2 is still considered mild & low risk. We next look at a protein called albumin and 23 g/mmol is moderate (>30) severe. In your question, you write CKD G2A3, I can't comment on the G, but 23 g/mmol is A2 - on tx? ...Read more
