Protein In Urine Analysis
Protein level in my urine analysis is marked as "f.trace" is it normal ? wheres as W.B.C 14-16 and R.B.C 2-4 ,pH acid , What does the results indicate
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
Hematuria: RBC in the urine could be either from the kidneys or the bladder(cystitis). Endothelial damage in the kidney can result in both hematuria and proteinuria. Protein content should be quanitifed to better understand its pathology,(Nephriti/Nephrotic). RBC's in the urine can accompany protein in the urine if the kidneys are injured. Protein will not be detected as a direct result of RBC in the urine ...Read more
I had 1+ protein show up in urine analysis. Very worried. Doctor not concerned. When I urinate I see some cluster bubbles through the day. Not morning?
See below: 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, 1+ protein is not worrisome if you renal function, i.e., serum creatinine and eGFR are normal. Bubbles in urine are not a cause for concern. 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
Can a regular urinalysis detect protein in urine? Just wondering, i went to pee and saw some small bubbles in toilet.
How serious is protein in urine? I know years ago they found some during urinalysis. I frequently pee and itch often. Pcp ordered 24 hr urine collect
Usually nothing: Most people will occasionally have small amounts of protein in a routine urinalysis. A long as the amount is small (1+ or trace) and not persistent, it's probably nothing. If there is a large amount, may indicate something more serious. 24 hour urine will more accurately quantify the amount of protein. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I had urinalysis done and 30 plus protein is in urine and back pain. What could cause protein in urine? Kidney failure?
Many things: this test detects normal amounts of albumin frequently as 30 mg/dl. I suggest a first morning void, if elevated then check a protein/creatinine ratio. Nephrology consultation may be needed, Causes, glomerulonephritis, interstitial disease, myeloma, infectin, nephrotic syndrome, diabetes, hypertension. A long list requiring medical attention to sort ...Read more

Protein is an expensive commodity for the body. The kidneys are entrusted to return protein back to the body during filtering, and not lose it to the urine. Losses > 150mg/day are indicative of a problem with the filtration mechanism of the kidney. A nephrologist should be consulted ...Read more
