How to reduce creatinine level from 4.9, having protein in urine of 67 mg. Person also have fasting blood sugar of 160 and now slowly coming to normal?

Lowering creatinine: It seems as if this person has diabetes. Apparently, this person has seen a physician. The creatinine (c) is dependent on a person's sex, age, weight and race. To know what the renal function, a 24 hour urine for (c) clearance and protein needs to be done as well as a renal ultrasound. Go to physician and have the glucose controlled. The c may not go down but may not increase with therapy

Urine (Definition)

Urine is the product of the kidneys, which is produced to eliminate the waste products of metabolism, manage body fluid balance, &maintain acid-base balance. 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

What causes protein in urine?

Protein in urine: A small amount of protein in the urine is not unusual but it is not detected by a urinalysis. The number one concern for the finding of urine is kidney disease. Other causes include urinary tract infection and inflammation of the urinary lining like a kidney stone. Www. Peedoc. Com @drhtay.

What causes of protein in urine?

What causes of protein in urine?

Cause protein/urine: There are three ways protein enters the urine.1due to overload of protein in the serum called overflow protenuria 2due to decrese in absorption in proximal tubule of kidneys 3due to disease in the glomerulus. It can be caused by biological like Avastin (bevacizumab) used in cancer, and some drugs like nonsteroidal analgesics or drinking more than 4 liters of liquids in a day.High fever, chf, sle, diabetes&hypertensi.

What are considered high levels of protein in urine?

What are considered high levels of protein in urine?

Proteinuria: Protein is normally not found in urine. The usual system used to quantify protein is 0, trace, and then 1+ to 4+. So there is a source of protein in the urine and the meaning of this needs to be looked at with any other lab abnormalities, signs/symptoms, clinical context.

What would cause protein in urine?

What would cause protein in urine?

Proteinuria: A small amount of proteinuria (protein in urine) from time to time usually doesn't mean anything important. There are many kinds of infections and kidney diseases that can cause larger amounts or continued presence of protein, some of them quite serious. Without more information, there's no way to even guess the cause in any one person. Discuss with your doctor. Good luck!

Is a 10 mg of protein in urine normal?

Depends: Was it a random urine or 24 hour urine? Is the the amount of protein in 24 hour urine of 10 mg/dL? Were you dehydrated when urine was collected? See this site for information on this topic. Http://www. Nlm. Nih. Gov/medlineplus/ency/article/003580.htm

What causes the presence of protein in urine?

Kidney disease: Presence of protein in the urine is usually suggestive of underlying kidney disease. When the kidney filters get damaged the protein from blood tends to leak into the urine and causes further damage. Most common causes are diabetes and high blood pressure. Please make appointment to see a kidney specialist.

Trace of protein in urine. What does it mean?

Trace of protein in urine. What does it mean?

See below: You are leaking a little protein in the urine- could be from several reasons. Get a urine protein to creatinine test done which will quantify the protein leak.

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.

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..

Diagnosis: The amount of protein over 24h, whether it is present supine and standing, the level of kidney function, and the presence of other diseases all contribute to the diagnosis. See a nephrologist for a diagnosis.

Is +1 protein in urine and leu +2 high? Or slight?

Depends: What type of urine sample was taken? If you only have results from a urine dipstick test and there is a concern for infection or other issue a better test would be a urinalysis with culture. The more sterile the sample the better

2+protein in urine for an athlete? Is it normal? Why?

Possibly: Could be orthostatic proteinuria, which is when protein spills into the urine later in the day. You need to get your first morning urine checked-it should be free of protein regardless of your athletic status.
