Urinalysis For Protein (Overview)

Protein (or precisely albumin) in urine indicates injury to glomeruli (filtering part of nephron in kidney). It can be detected by simple dipstick. Or by random urine protein to creatinine ratio or 24 hour urine collection. 30-300 mg is microalbuminuria and >300 mg is macroalbuminuria.

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

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. However, don't get overconcerned but faithfully practice healthy lifestyle with no overindulgence / obsession for evrerything we do in life. As to TTC x 7 months, ask gyn-doc for thorough evaluation on you and your partner ...Read more

What does microcytic rbcs in urinalysis mean protein and wbcs were normal?

What does microcytic rbcs in urinalysis mean protein and wbcs were normal?

Likely mechanical,,,: This likely comes from a mechanical issue where blood cells pass through the glomerulus and tubules and get damaged, so they get dysmorphic features, but they usually are doughnut shaped, not microcytic. 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

Past few years my urinalysis has protein and dr says my kidney function labs could be better for my age but they’re not to bad. What can this mean?

Past few years my urinalysis has protein and dr says my kidney function labs could be better for my age but they’re not to bad. What can this mean?

Here are some...: Have you had a Hx of chronic kidney disease in life? Is this set of lab the only one you have had or numerous over time? If having had prior serial tests, always review and refer back to prior reports so to see what might be the related progression. If not clear for the above Qs, I would just get another set of same tests in 6-12 months for comparison. More? Ask your doctors or me timely; I can... ...Read more

Recent urinalysis found protein&trace blood. But also lists RBC result 2/units hpf/reference range 0-1, so mine is 2 what does this mean? Dr in 1month!

Likely nonspecific.: Protein in the urine can be nonspecific, or indicate a condition such as renal infections, diabetes mellitus, jaundice, or hyperthyroidism. Blood in the urine can be from trauma, stones, infection, or a catheter, or if there is painless hematuria, or blood in the urine, it could indicate bladder cancer. ...Read more

4 yr old son urine foams up in toilet, urinalysis says protein 0 mg/ dl, do I need to check albumin or other test? Got 4 urinalysis done all clear.

4 yr old son urine foams up in toilet, urinalysis says protein 0 mg/ dl, do I need to check albumin or other test? Got 4 urinalysis done all clear.

If the urinalysis: Is all clear in terms of protein, maybe there is something in the toilet causing the foaming. Left over soap or other products. Have him pee in something other than the toilet and see if the problem still occurs. If so then take him to a pediatrician for evaluation. ...Read more

A few things: If you are muscular, the creatinine is normal. Most worrisome is the blood in your urine. You'll get a work up to rule out something serious like kidney cancer. Urine bilirubin may be a lab error and the uronilinogen is normal. ...Read more

33 year old mother. Urinalysis found protein and sugar. What is this?

See below.: Urinary protein: can be the result of urological and nephrological (kidney) disorders, but may also be seen temporarily in strenuous exercise, dehydration, and urinary tract infections. How much protein?
Urinary glucose: can occur with defects in renal tubular function and in familial renal glucosuria, a genetic disorder, as well as diabetes.
Both: suggest you should be screened for diabetes. ...Read more

For over a year I have had multiple urinalysis showing protein and leukocytes. There is no UTI or kidney problems. What could be causing it?

For over a year I have had multiple urinalysis showing protein and leukocytes. There is no UTI or kidney problems. What could be causing it?

Here are some. ..: Generally speaking, the presence of protein + WBCs in the uirne suggests having some kinds of kidney inflammation although there has been no UTI and kidney function remains "normal" as suggested in serum creatinine, which wouldn't elevate until losing >65% of total renal function. So, you may see nephrologist for F/U and it's advisable to avoid drug use such as NSAIDs & practice healthy lifestyle. ...Read more

UTI: You appear to have some type of infection and if your culture is negative you need to have an exam to determine if the infection could possibly be vaginal. See your doctor and get a definitive diagnosis ...Read more

I'm 36, male, 130 lbs, 5' 5" in height. My creatinine is 109.63 umol/l. In my urinalysis, protein is negative. The pH is 6.5. How are my kidneys?

I'm 36, male, 130 lbs, 5' 5" in height. My creatinine is 109.63 umol/l. In my urinalysis, protein is negative. The pH is 6.5. How are my kidneys?

Cratinine of 109.63: Your creatinine of 109.63 translates to a creatinine of 1.24 mg/dl. This is normal for your age. To find out what your kidney function is accurately, you need to have a 24 hour urine collection for creatinine clearance and protein. Even though your urine analysis is negative, a 24 hour urine collection will be more accurate to see if you have proteinuria. Good luck. ...Read more

My dr said my urinalysis showed higher proteins. Neg for proturia and no multiple myloma. Why is he sending me to a hematologist? Ur pro 12. Alb 32.9

Proteinuria: >150 mg: Proteinuria (abnormally high level of protein in urine) is usually defined as more than 150 milligrams of protein in urine per day.

Proteinuria may be seen in a variety of diseases (diabetes, high blood pressure), many associated with kidney problems.

Multiple myeloma is a form of blood and bone marrow cancer that can cause significant proteinuria. Urine protein electrophoresis may be necessary. ...Read more

Urinalysis: trace of protein, 1+ bilirubin, trace leukocytes. Had blood work done last couple of months, everything seemed fine. What could it be?

I wouldn't worry: Trace protein is never worth worrying about. If you're a female, the leukocytes are probably a vaginal contaminant. 1+ bilirubin is a lab error if your serum conjugated / direct bilirubin is not elevated. ...Read more

What can cause upper stomach to swell twice it's size, round and hard like a basketball? Not preg., CT scan showed no free fluid/air, enlarged ovary 4 x 4.5 - urinalysis w/ blood, protein and lg leuk

What can cause upper stomach to swell twice it's size, round and hard like a basketball? Not preg., CT scan showed no free fluid/air, enlarged ovary 4 x 4.5 - urinalysis w/ blood, protein and lg leuk

Bowel gas: Once you have confirmed that the ovary is not a concern you have ruled out most of the more serious causes. A bladder infection should not cause those symptoms. A bacterial overgrowth in the gastrointestinal tract with or without problems digesting carbohydrates can be a set up for fermentation and gas production which can produce significant bloating. Start with a good probiotic and follow up. ...Read more

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, your serum calcium is higher than normal and you should discuss it with your doctor. You may consult this site for information on this topic:

Ua (Definition)

A ua is a urinalysis, or chemical and microscopic analysis of the urine. The standard urinalysis is performed with a dipstick test for ph, blood, protein, sugar, and ketones. In addition, a urinalysis usually includes a microscope examination to identify if the urine contains cells, "casts" (structures that indicate a problem originating in the kidney) or crystals (such as ...Read more
