My prenatal care provider said high protein in urine and suggested water and cj. But kidneys still ache. Should I go to er.
High urine protein: To treat high proteinuria (p), you need to get a diagnosis. The first step is to have a 24 hour urine collection to assess kidney function and quantify the p/day. Blood work will also need to be taken to arrive at a diagnosis. If the p is due to a type of glomerulonephritis, certain drugs can be given to treat it. If the p is due to diabetes, certain drugs such as ace-i's are used to lower the p. ...Read more
3 levels of protein in urine:
microalbuminuria--less than 300 mg a day
tubular--300-1000 mg a day
nephrotic--more than 3500
if there is blood in the urine you may have a glomerulonephritis and this may be a very serious condition that causes rapid loss of kidney function.
In general the more protein in the urine the worse the prognosis.
There are too many diagnosis to list.
You need a workup. ...Read more
