Urine: You have 420mg of protein which is above normal threshold but not enough to suggest disease. The fact you have Pregnancy associated htn suggest you should follow your BP. I would recheck your urine test and would also check micro albumin urine.

Hypertension (Definition)

A blood pressure reading has two numbers: a systolic blood pressure and a diastolic blood pressure. The systolic blood pressure is the maximum pressure the blood exerts on the vessels when the heart is beating. The diastolic blood pressure is the pressure the blood exerts on the vessels in between heartbeats. Hypertension, or high blood pressure, begins when the systolic blood pressure remains above 140 or when the diastolic blood pressure remains above 90. Hypertension can be a result of increased blood flow through vessels or increased resistance to ...Read more

Is it normal to have protein in urine during pregnancy? What would be the causes while pregnant? No high blood pressure or diabetes present. Is it serious?

Proteinuria: Urinary protein (p) excretion is abnormal in pregnancy when it exceeds 300 mg/24 hours at anytime during gestation. P documented before pregnancy or before 20 weeks' gestation suggests preexisting renal disease. It's recommended that that the diagnosis of proteinuria be based on the 24-hour urine collection. Preeclampsia must be excluded in women with p first identified after 20 weeks. ...Read more

What causes protein in urine and low bun?

Proteinuria, low BUN: Proteinuria (p) needs to be quantified. This can be done with a 24 hour urine collection that will measure p as well as the renal function of a patient. Blood work (bw) will need to be taken. If the p > 1 gram/day, and bw does not give the p's cause, a kidney biopsy may be needed. Low BUN levels may be reflection of a low protein intake or over-hydration. See a nephrologist for more info. ...Read more

tubular--300-1000 mg a day
nephrotic--more than 3500

if there is blood in the urine you may have a glomerulonephritis and this may be a very serious condition that causes rapid loss of kidney function.

In general the more protein in the urine the worse the prognosis.
