See answer: Your urinalysis is likely normal and not indicative of a urinary or kidney problem. Ketones usually just indicate that you have not recently eaten and your body is burning fat (which produces ketones) rather than carbohydrates (sugar) for energy. Likewise, a small amount of protein (trace to 1+) is a common and usually insignificant finding, whereas, 2+ or greater often signifies renal disease. ...Read more

Will protein-creatinine ratio be calculated, if urine test only show ''traces'' of protein? Or do they only do it, if it's over 300 mg/l?

Will protein-creatinine ratio be calculated, if urine test only show ''traces'' of protein? Or do they only do it, if it's over 300 mg/l?

No.: Spot urine protein to creatinine ratio must be ordered separately. Trace proteinuria can be significant in some disease conditions such as diabetes, when microalbumin to creatinine ratio should be calculated. ...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 have foamy urine but my recent urinalysis test says there is no protein in my urine although I had traces of protein in my urine some time ago. I repeated the urine test a week later and there was no more protein in my urine but urine still foamy?

I have foamy urine but my recent urinalysis test says there is no protein in my urine although I had traces of protein in my urine some time ago. I repeated the urine test a week later and there was no more protein in my urine but urine still foamy?

Foamy urine: Very rapid urination/strong force can cause foam/bubbles in the urine. If that is the case, it may persist as long as you pee hard and fast. The only other significant cause of foam is proteinuria. If the urine dipstick test remains negative for protein, you're in the clear, but with your history, periodic testing is advised. ...Read more

Kidneys are fragile: Yes. You should be worried. Your body is ill. It is not handling your weight, your diet, and your blood pressure. You will see more rapid aging if you do not make some drastic changes. I believe the only way to make any changes is to get bariatric surgery. This condition you have is urgent. ...Read more

What does it mean when my urine test shows +1 protein?

Proteinuria: Have a 24 hour urine collection to see the amount of protein in the urine and to assess your kidney function. I would also do a renal ultrasound to assess the size of the kidneys.
Depending on the amount of proteinuria, I would send off blood for aso, anca 2, complement C3 and c4, hiv, hepatitis b antibodies, hb a1c and ana. A renal biopsy may also be needed for a diagnosis and a prognosis. ...Read more

What does some protein on a routine urine test of a child mean?

What does some protein on a routine urine test of a child mean?

Hope is orthostatic: Orthostatic proteinuria is most common cause of urinary protein in a child. Thus child spills protein when they are up & about, not when recumbent. It's benign. Can be checked by having child urinate 2 hours after bed, then checking first A.M. Urine. Active proteinuria round the clock might be indicative of kidney disease, such as glomerulonephritis, and should be checked by pediatric nephrologist. ...Read more

May need to recheck: Any blood in the urine can give rise to positive test for hemoglobin and protein. It is best to follow up on it as it means there is something wrong if the results are real. So you should get a repeat urinalysis done and then consult a kidney specialist if the results show any rbcs and or protein in your urine as it could mean intrinsic kidney disease like nephritis. ...Read more
