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

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)

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

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
