Preeclampsia Urinalysis Protein
A ua is a urinalysis, or chemical and microscopic analysis of the urine. The standard urinalysis is performed with a dipstick test for ph, blood, protein, sugar, and ketones. In addition, a urinalysis usually includes a microscope examination to identify if the urine contains cells, "casts" (structures that indicate a problem originating in the kidney) or crystals (such as ...Read more
My dr found an increase of protein in my urine and has ordered a preeclampsia test for me i 'v done a little research and now i'm extremely worried ?
Good to do the tests: Preeclampsia is usually diagnosed by elevated BP and protein in the urine. A 24-hour urine collection is important for the determination of how much protein is present. Spot check of protein is unreliable - could be contamination or a sign of mild infection. You will know what is happening after getting the test results. Be sure to report severe headaches, abd pain, and/or vision changes. ...Read more

Preeclampsia is caused by high protein in urine. Is that caused by eating too much protein, as is too much egg, milk, etc?Please explain. Avoidable?
Can preeclampsia be possible if no high BP (possible that prescription buspirone/sertraline keeping BP low?) have had occasional protein trace in urine....
Im doing the 24 hr urine creatitine total protein test and a few blood test to check my liver and kindeys...I know the doctor suspects preeclampsia..But does it mean I for sure have it? Just because im doing test or is that why im doing them?
Proceed with caution: The tests you mention are a way to look for the early warning signs of a condition that is potentially deadly for you& baby. Preeclampsia(pe) can progress without obvious symptoms you would feel, so looking at the tests is a cautious way of preparing to act if specialized rx is needed. Many are tested that won't progress to pe & sometimes the tests are repeated over several days when needed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

How long on average do the symptoms of preeclampsia, hypertension and protien in urine take to go away completely after birth?
Post-eclampsia Elert: Usually signs of preaclampsia disappear 1-2 wks after birth. If you have symptoms persisting beyond delivery, it would be called post aclampsia, which should be viewed seriously for potential of complications such as hypertension, seizures and kidney disease. Besides your BP, your OB doctor may want to test your blood for platelets (for clotting ability), urine and BP and you may benefit from meds ...Read more
I had my baby 9 days ago 10 weeks early because of preeclampsia.pressure is still very high and urine still full of protien. What Chance of seizure?
Ask your OB: This is a good question to ask your OB as he/she knows all of your other lab numbers and has the ability to examine you for things such as hyper-reflexive, etc. Generally, the chance of going from severe preeclampsia to eclampsia (where you have a seizure) is quite low once you have delivered. Good luck ad hope your baby is doing well. ...Read more
Glomerular disease: Protein in urine is usually due to damage to the glomeruli of the kidneys and infections in the urinary system. Common reasons of kidney damage are diabetes, hypertension, and inflammations of the glomeruli. If you have protein in urine it would be prudent to consult your doctor for evaluation and treatment. ...Read more
Likely mechanical,,,: This likely comes from a mechanical issue where blood cells pass through the glomerulus and tubules and get damaged, so they get dysmorphic features, but they usually are doughnut shaped, not microcytic. This happens in glomerulonephritis or inflammation from infection or autoimmune diseases. It can also be due to a bleeding/hemolytic issue from heart valve, etc. Or ureter issue (stones, etc.). ...Read more
Depends on profile: Serum protein levels are made up of a variety of proteins, albumin, as well as alpha, beta and gamma globulins. If you get a serum protein electrophoresis, the relative quantities of these proteins can be assessed. Most commonly, the Albumin level can go up or down depending on fasting levels. The other levels can go up or down depending on disease conditions or medications. See your internist. ...Read more
My urinalysis was negative except for protein (+1) and presence of amorphous sediment. What does this mean? Do I have a UTI? Thank you.
Probably no UTI: The main urinalysis abnormality in UTI is increased white blood cells; or on a dipstick test, positive leukocyte esterase and nitrites. Amorphous sediment is entirely normal. 1+ protein usually also doesn't mean anything. So no evidence at all of UTI. Beyond that, discuss with your doctor. ...Read more
I'm 36, male, 130 lbs, 5' 5" in height. My creatinine is 109.63 umol/l.. In my urinalysis, protein is negative. The pH is 6.5. How are my kidneys?
Cratinine of 109.63: Your creatinine of 109.63 translates to a creatinine of 1.24 mg/dl. This is normal for your age. To find out what your kidney function is accurately, you need to have a 24 hour urine collection for creatinine clearance and protein. Even though your urine analysis is negative, a 24 hour urine collection will be more accurate to see if you have proteinuria. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What are some symptoms of renal failure?... A cousin of mine and my uncle both died from renal failure. In my last urinalysis i had a lot of protein.
Recent urinalysis found protein&trace blood. But also lists RBC result 2/units hpf/reference range 0-1, so mine is 2 what does this mean?Dr in 1month!
Likely nonspecific.: Protein in the urine can be nonspecific, or indicate a condition such as renal infections, diabetes mellitus, jaundice, or hyperthyroidism. Blood in the urine can be from trauma, stones, infection, or a catheter, or if there is painless hematuria, or blood in the urine, it could indicate bladder cancer. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My dr said my urinalysis showed higher proteins. Neg for proturia and no multiple myloma. Why is he sending me to a hematologist? Ur pro 12. Alb 32.9
Proteinuria: >150 mg: Proteinuria (abnormally high level of protein in urine) is usually defined as more than 150 milligrams of protein in urine per day. Proteinuria may be seen in a variety of diseases (diabetes, high blood pressure), many associated with kidney problems. Multiple myeloma is a form of blood and bone marrow cancer that can cause significant proteinuria. Urine protein electrophoresis may be necessary. ...Read more
