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.

What is protein in urine mean if kidney disease?

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.

What does 1+ protein in urine mean? I had a blood test and my dr wants me to see an nephrologist

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.

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 in urine what does that mean? The dr said its nothing to worry about.

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.

Does protein in urine always mean kidney dysfunction?

Does protein in urine always mean kidney dysfunction?

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.

Trace of blood and protein in urine what does that mean?

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.

What does it mean if I have high nitrates and protein in urine?

What does it mean if I have high nitrates and protein in urine?

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.

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.

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.
