Slight foamy urine.spot urine test-protein 5mg/dl,creatinine 37mg/dl,albumin 2 mg/litre.Is it normal or proteinuria ?

Proteinuria: We generally calculate the urine protein to creatinine ratio and as long as the ratio is below 300 mg/g it is considered not significant (yours is only 135mg/g) so your proteinuria is not significant. But the Albumin level you mentioned, is it serum (blood) Albumin level? If yes, it is very low and unlikely! Please verify your Albumin level and it's source (blood or urine) . ...Read more

Serum free light chain test shows normal kappa (8.7mg/dl), low lambda (3.80), high kap/lam ratio (2.31). Serum $ urine electrophoresis show no monoclonal protein, nor does serum immunofixation. Likely MGUS, myeloma, or admyloidosis? CBC/met panel ok.

False positive rate: There is 30% or so false positive rate of kappa/lambda ratio in people without MGUS, myeloma or other disorders. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more

Is bence jones protein different from regular protein in urine?

Is bence jones protein different from regular protein in urine?

Yes: Usually, Albumin or a mix of proteins are the stuff in "proteinuria". Bence-jones is immunoglobulin light chains and is much more worrisome. It also often doesn't show on the urine dipsticks that are the usual screen for proteinuria. ...Read more

Total protein, 24 hr urine
is this good or bad? 
(protein, urine, qn <=11 mg/dl -my result <6)
protein, 24 hr urine -unable to calculate. A1c, kidney panel, ua, lipid normal

Urine results: Your urine shows that you have virtually no protein in your urine, which is a good thing. Patients with proteinuria have an increased rate of kidney failure, heart attacks and strokes which is related to the amount of protein in the urine both in diabetic and non-diabetic patients. What was the reason for the urine collection? ...Read more

KL FLC chains to rule out light chain myeloma? No m spike in serum or 24-hr urine, but lambda bence jones in spot urine but md didnt order urine ifa?

KL FLC chains to rule out light chain myeloma? No m spike in serum or 24-hr urine, but lambda bence jones in spot urine but md didnt order urine ifa?

Does not add up: How do you know it was lambda bence jones in urine without a urine IFA? This issue is not suitable for this forum as a diagnosis of myeloma requires results of other tests as well, e.g., bone X-ray, bone marrow examination, serum calcium and beta 2 microglobulin levels etc. It would be prudent to discuss the matter with a hematologist. ...Read more
