Protein Trace In Urine Test
I have short breath for a week so I had some tests yesterday, protein ua 50mg/dl ketones 60mg/dl and trace in protein urine sulfasalicylic acid test?
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
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
What possible diagnosis for the ff urine test report: sg 1.035 pH 8.0 blood trace protein 100mg/dl l.Est moderate nitride pos. And bacteria of 50-250?
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?
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?
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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
Urine test shows traces or leukocytes and protieon, does that mean uti, pH is 7.0. I have pain in my back and pelvis area. No burning or cloudy urine. Should I take macrobid?
Not without Rx: While you may indeed have a uti, taking a medication that requires a prescription should not be done without physician oversight. There may be reasons unrelated to your symptoms that prevent a physician from wanting you to be on a particular medication. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Varies: Protein makes its way into pee thru several sources. If it spills from the kidneys it can be a kidney defect or infection if the sample is obtained after the kid has been standing for a while, small amounts can occur. If squirted out by a little girl in a cup, it likely contains some skin & vaginal wash. Interpretation depends on multiple factors you can discuss with your dr. ...Read more
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
