Normal Protein Count In Urine
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
The urine should not contain much if any protein. The kidney's job is to filter out those toxins that need excretion while keeping the important protein in the blood.
Protein loss in the urine can be assess with a dipstick urine test. If elevated, a confirmatory 24 hour urine will measure more accurately how much protein is lost. Less than 30 mg of microalbumin/24 hrs is considered ok. ...Read more
Spot urine: creat: 40.6 mg/dl, prot: 38.1; prot/creat ratio 938 mg/g. If creat. Is normal but protein is high, should I be concerned?
Protein level in my urine analysis is marked as "f.trace" is it normal? Where's as W.B.C 14-16 and R.B.C 2-4, pH acid, What does the results indicate
Random urine test last week with protein 100mg. Today follow up urine was negative for protein, all normal. How can it can go up and then be negative?
Random urine normal no protein. Same sample Urine Electro- no monoclonal protein normal test but incidentally noted 4 mg/DL Albunim. Is this abnormal?
Depends: Urine can be very dilute or concentrated depending on fluid intake. Albumin is 4mg/dl or 40mg/l (liter). Normal urine output can range from 0.5l to more than 3 l/day. This is probably nl but could be 20 mg to more than 120 mg/day. Normal excretion is <30 mg/day. Reporting the result as alb/gm creatinine (nl<30 mg/gm) corrects for concentration. Or a 24 hour urine collection can be performed. ...Read more
Did urine dip at work and it is positive for nitrates and protein 3+ everything else is normal. What does this mean?
Urine dipstick: Nitrite: many bacteria produce enzyme nitrate reductase which confers the ability to convert urinary nitrate to nitrite. Positive test means possible UTI. Next step is urine culture. Protein:most sensitive to albumin in urine but positive protein (trace, 1+, 2+ 3+) may not reliable if urine sample is dilute. Dipstick may not detect albuminuria of 30 to 300 mg/day. More tests needed. Consult PCP ...Read more
Urine labs received with out a reference. Creatine 32, protein 12.1, pro/ cret ratio. 38. Are these results with in normal range?
This: This is an estimate of how much protein you are spilling in your urine. You are spilling some, but not a large amount to typically warrant a biopsy if the numbers are correct. Your rheumatologist may still want you to see a nephrologist or kidney doctor to see if they can minimize any protein spillage. ...Read more
Albumin is the major component of urine protein. Small discrete band noted in gamma region, 3% of total urine protein, is this normal?
I did a urinalysis and the result said I had trace of protein in my urine, I am so scared please help me, every other thing was normal?
Further eval indicat: Tr proteinuria is not usually indicative of serious disease...it probably was a dipctick reading and therefore not entirely reliable...you shoud return to your doctor and request a repeat test and, if still positive, ask for a quantitative urinary measurement of protein.... ...Read more

Urine routine. All normal except Occult Blood 2+, Protein 30 mg/dl. Blood all normal except GFR 66. 37 yr old semi-active male. How serious?
Hematuria: Hematuria is always serious if there is no obvious explanation. Expect a workup for kidney and bladder cancer for starters. It would be great to detect these while still curable. There's more but this is the most important reason to be concerned. ...Read more
Urine chemstrip, culture, microscopic all normal except 100 mg protein. Renal panel/urine normal 3 mos. Ago. Can kidneys develop problems that fast?
Mild proteinuria: This is an isolated lab result that means very little unless correlated with your clinical findings and other lab studies. Call your doctor and discuss this. But yes, kidney problems have the potential for rapid development, of course depending upon what the issues are. ...Read more
Do normal ''standard'' urine dipstick tests measure protein/creatinine ratio? Or do they only calculate protein by mg/dl?
Do normal ''standard'' urine dipstick tests measure protein/creatinine ratio? Or do they only calculate protein by mg/dl? Please answer
Standard urine dipstick only measures protein by colorimetric method. If urine is postive for protein, exclude false positive, eg fever, uti, exercise postural. If positive, quantify it by measuring both protein and creatinine in the urine..
1+ corresponds to about 200-500 mg/24 hours, a 2+ to 0.5-1.5 gm/24 hours, a 3+ to 2-5 gm/24 hours, and a 4+ represents 7 gm/24 hours or greater. ...Read more

Nephrologist: A check up with a nephrologist for further workup would be appropriate. ...Read more
Is it normal to have protein in the urine w/a gallbladder sludge? Does it mean something could be wrong w/pancreas if protein present in urine?
Separate problem: Protein in the urine is a separate problem from gallbladder sludge/stones and can be serious. Kidney damage that can lead to kidney failure is associated with protein in the urine. Okay to talk to your doc about additional risks for kidney problems, (diabetes, hypertension, elevated phosphorous). Also okay to ask about surgery referral for cholecystectomy. ...Read more
24hr urine (5000mL) creatinine, protein, and albumin results are high - about double the max normal, but blood is normal. What would cause this?
Proteinuria: With certain kidney pathology there can be heavy amounts of protein lost in the urine due to glomerular pathology but the rest of the kidney function can be good enough so that blood tests for kidney function are still normal. A nephrologist can better explain your status after evaluating you and all your pertinent test results. ...Read more
Urine test results: urine blood 3+, urine protein trace. Are these normal, or should I be concerned? Currently being worked up for low h/h (7.2/27)
Follow advice: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, 3+ blood in urine and h/h of 7.2/27 are not normal. Make sure to follow your doctor's advice about tests and treatments. ...Read more
I am having pain in my sides, especially in the back. What kind of doctor should I see? I also have higher levels then normal of protein in my urine.
PCP: You start by seeing your PCP. You may need to be referred to a nephrologist but let that decision come from the doctor that is familiar with you and your condition. Your doctor will also be helpful in guiding your choice of whom to see. ...Read more
What would normally happen, if a urine dipstick test shows ''traces'' of protein? Will my doctor then recommend a repeated test? Or will he ignore it?
What diseases could be related with low urinary output, when creatinine, BUN and urine analysis including proteins and clearance are normal? Many thank
Be more specific?: Something's wrong here. Urinary output parallels fluid intake from all sources. If you drink more water, and your kidney function is reasonably normal, you pee more. If you're not drinking much, and it's a hot day and you're sweating, your urine output will be lower than some reference range. Generally, don't try to diagnose yourself or other with labs without sharing a clinical history. ...Read more
Specimen vol. 24 hr urine was 3000. Protein, urine, qn was "<6" (range<=11 mg) 24 hr urine was "unable to calculate" (range<=149). Dr says all normal. But im confused "unable to calculate" result.
No need to worry: The protein content of your urine is low enough to be not a concern. Unable to calculate only means that the concentration was too low to be able to calculate 24 hour urine protein. ...Read more
Not infrequent...: It is not infrequent to see trace protein or/& blood on chemstrip dip urinalysis, which are not considered to be clinically significant. Nonetheless, for trace blood, do micrpscopic exam so to confirm how many RBCs per high power field; for trace protein, test blood for renal function soon & yearly afterword for 3-5 yrs as follow-up.

Blood and protein: Blood (b) in your urine (u) is an abnormal finding. Protein (p) in your urine is abnormal when it is > 80 mg/day. Your lab work may be normal when b and p first appear in your u. Do a 24 hour urine for creatinine clearance and protein and have a renal ultrasound (us). If the us doesn't show any bleeding site, have cystoscopy. If you have > 1 gram of protein/day, you may need a kidney biopsy. ...Read more
