What Does 2 Protein In Urine Mean
Need more info: It may mean nothing or it may be significant. You need 24 hour urine collections to quantitate to amount of protein excreted as well as a precise measurement of kidney function. You also need an examination of the urine sediment to look for abnormalities there. Speak with your rheumatologist.
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
Proteinuria: Presence of protein in the urine is usually suggestive of underlying kidney disease. When the kidney filters get damaged the protein from blood tends to leak into the urine and causes further damage. Most common causes are diabetes and high blood pressure. Please make appointment to see a kidney specialist.
Blood and protein: Blood (b) in your urine (u) is an abnormal finding. Protein (p) in your urine is abnormal when it is > 80 mg/day. Your lab work may be normal when b and p first appear in your u. Do a 24 hour urine for creatinine clearance and protein and have a renal ultrasound (us). If the us doesn't show any bleeding site, have cystoscopy. If you have > 1 gram of protein/day, you may need a kidney biopsy.
Recheck urine: I agree. You can see protein in urine after exercise in some individuals and teenage can have orthostatic proteinuria. Where protein will appear in the urine on ambulation and it disappears when lying down. I think the next step would be to have. A repeat urine first urine in the morning and no exercise for 24 hours before the sample. I would have the doctor measure the protein creatinine rat.See 3 more doctor answers
Proteinuria: Proteinuria is a condition, not a diagnosis. It can be caused by several diseases, among them hiv, diabetes, lupus, membranous glomerulonephritis, among others. You need to see a nephrologist to have a 24 hour urine collected to assess your kidney function and how much protein your urine has in it. The nephrologist will also take blood tests to rule out the conditions, and others, discussed above.See 1 more doctor answer
We'll find out: Your physician knows how to follow this up knowing about your overall health and life. Orthostatic proteinuria, the most common cause, is diagnosed by having you empty your bladder before you go to bed, and finding the protienuria is gone on first-voided morning specimen. Other proteinuria can be more worrisome if persistent.
Trace of Protein: Trace of protein in urine without any other symptoms and with all the other tests being normal can be harmless and normal under certain conditions. Like exercise or cold exposure. If all other tests are normal and you doctor has assured you that there is nothing to worry. I will not worry and may be get it repeated sometime in future. I presume the test was done by lab and not dip stick,See 2 more doctor answers
No: It is possible to have isolated proteinuria in which case there is protein in the urine (no greater than 3g/24h) but no other abnormalities in urine or blood tests, as well as no symptoms associated with kidney problems and a normal physical exam. It is a diagnosis of exclusion.See 1 more doctor answer
Need to repeat: If you had your period when urinalysis was done, it could have contaminated the urine sample and you should repeat the test. If this not the case, the urinalysis should still be repeated. If the blood and protein is persistent and more than trace, you should see a nephrologist who can microscopically analyze blood to see if source is kidney. If so, you should be evaluated for glomerulonephritis.
Ketones in urine show 80 and urobolinogen 2.0. Trace protein in urine. All else negative or normal. What does this mean.
Has protein in urine after 2 urine tests in 4 months. Dr won't say what it means. Am on various psych meds. I have no symptons. Should I worry?
Abnormal urine: Under normal conditions, urine contains no nitrates (n). N may be a sign of a uti. You should see a physician have a urine sent off of a culture and, if there are bacteria take a course of antibiotics. Repeat the urine analysis and if you still have protein, you should see a nephrologist for a 24 hour urine collection for creatinine clearance and protein as well as getting some blood work.See 1 more doctor answer
If my GFR stays in low 40s and cr is high but I have no protein in urine does that mean I don't have CKD or does that mean the kd isn't bad yet?
How accurate are urine dip sticks? Did one at Dr office and showed protein in urine. Can it mean uti? Dr taking it to lab for culture.
Quite accurate: Trace protein in the urine is never worrisome by itself. +1 may be worth a workup. +2 is worth investigating. The usual cause is orthostatic proteinuria -- if you're well otherwise, see if your first-voided morning specimen is free of protein, and if it is, you know you're someone who gets proteinuria from standing up -- no big deal. Best wishes.
Protein is an expensive commodity for the body. The kidneys are entrusted to return protein back to the body during filtering, and not lose it to the urine. Losses > 150mg/day are indicative of a problem with the filtration mechanism of the kidney. A nephrologist should be consulted ...Read more
