Urinalysis result protein trace pH level 6. Pregnant? Ttc for 7 mos.

Here are some ...: Urine PH 6 is normal but trace urine protein needs a watch - at least getting a spot urine protein as base line for future reference, since it may suggest subtle kidney disease.

This happens in glomerulonephritis or inflammation from infection or autoimmune diseases. It can also be due to a bleeding/hemolytic issue from heart valve, etc. Or ureter issue (stones, etc.). ...Read more
