Urine (Definition)

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

Is it normal to have traces of blood and protein in urine after uti is gone?

Is it normal to have traces of blood and protein in urine after uti is gone?

Not infrequent...: It is not infrequent to see trace protein or/& blood on chemstrip dip urinalysis, which are not considered to be clinically significant. Nonetheless, for trace blood, do micrpscopic exam so to confirm how many RBCs per high power field; for trace protein, test blood for renal function soon & yearly afterword for 3-5 yrs as follow-up.

What exactly does blood & protein in urine mean when kidney test says normal?

What exactly does blood & protein in urine mean when kidney test says normal?

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. ...Read more

Blood work shows iron at 178 and a/g ratio at 2.8 both high. Also protein in urine. Everything else normal. What could be?

Blood work shows iron at 178 and a/g ratio at 2.8 both high. Also protein in urine. Everything else normal. What could be?

Lab values: Your iron level is normal and you have a high a/g ratio. Causes of this are, such as genetic disorders, high protein/high carbohydrate diets, and a few genetic disorders are some of the conditions where a high a/g ratio will be present, among others. Your proteinuria is a problem. Collect your urine for 24 hours to get a measurement of your renal function and how much proteinuria you have/day. ...Read more

How to reduce creatinine level from 4.9, having protein in urine of 67 mg. Person also have fasting blood sugar of 160 and now slowly coming to normal?

How to reduce creatinine level from 4.9, having protein in urine of 67 mg. Person also have fasting blood sugar of 160 and now slowly coming to normal?

Lowering creatinine: It seems as if this person has diabetes. Apparently, this person has seen a physician. The creatinine (c) is dependent on a person's sex, age, weight and race. To know what the renal function, a 24 hour urine for (c) clearance and protein needs to be done as well as a renal ultrasound. Go to physician and have the glucose controlled. The c may not go down but may not increase with therapy ...Read more

7 mo postpartum. Hypertension right after birth. Resolved quickly. Now have protein in urine (0.42g/24 hr). Creatine tests normal. Possibilities?

Urine: You have 420mg of protein which is above normal threshold but not enough to suggest disease. The fact you have Pregnancy associated htn suggest you should follow your BP. I would recheck your urine test and would also check micro albumin urine. Future urine for protein and urine for creatinine ratio is as reliable as a 24 hr and can be used to follow progression. ...Read more

I have 4.5 mm kidney stone at the ureterovesical junction, and have bubbly urine in mornings. Why? (renal profiling normal, no protein in urine)

I have 4.5 mm kidney stone at the ureterovesical junction, and have bubbly urine in mornings. Why? (renal profiling normal, no protein in urine)

Check 24h urine prot: "bubbly urine" usually indicates protein in the urine but not always. Sometimes just the force of the urinary stream can create "bubbles" in the toilet bowl. But your concern about protein in your urine is valid. I suggest you ask yourdoctor to order a 24-hour urine for protein since it is the most accurate way to detect protein in the urine. ...Read more

What should be done for high levels of protein in urine?

What should be done for high levels of protein in urine?

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

What are possible causes of high levels of protein in urine?

What are possible causes of high levels of protein in urine?

See Nephrologist: 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

Protein in urine and leukocytes. What should I do?

Protein in urine and leukocytes. What should I do?

Talk to your doctor: Leukocytes in urine can indicate inflammation or infection. Inflammation will cause protein loss as well. If you have a urinary tract infection, have it treated and re-check your urine. If it normalizes, do not worry. If no infection, more studies are needed to find out why there is kidney inflammation. It helps to quantify the protein loss. If severe, can lead to kidney failure. ...Read more

What does trace of protein in urine represent?

Kidney defect: Normal kidneys usually retain all protein so no protein ends up in the urine. If the membranes in the kidney go through damage or inflammation, it may become leaky and protein will show up in the urine. Infection and inflammation can disrupt the membrane. This can be reversible or irreversible. See your doctor for further work-up. ...Read more
