Why Would My Total Protein Be Low On A Random Urine Sample
See a nephrologist: Hi. The trace ketones don't mean much, but protein in the urine is a finding in a variety of kidney diseases (from diabetes, high blood pressure, and a number of intrinsic kidney diseases). It's important you see a nephrologist and have the cause of the proteinuria determined and treated if possible. Good luck! ...Read more
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

I recently had a random urine test done, and my protein total random urine is 393. My creatinine two urine is 242.6. Is this high?
These results could: Be due to effects on the kidney from diabetes, hypertension, autoimmune, connective tissue diseases etc. Ask and get reassurance from your dr.

Is a potassium level of 77.1 and a sodium level of 94 normal for a random urine sample? I did not have the 24 urine test done.
Incomplete: There are "normal values" for these tests. The Na is compared to the blood (or serum). You can do a "spot urine Cr to potassium" to estimate the potassium, but even this is not perfect. Something is missing from this information. Why was it done? What type of doctor did these test. You need to discuss this with the doctor who did these tests to see what he/she is looking for. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Why might I have a gfr reading of 78 and no albumin in my urine and normal creatinine levels in my urine? So it's unable to calculate an ACR.
High levels, not low: levels, of albumin may be a marker for kidney problems. Your GFR is well within normal range. No albumin was detected in your urine. Urine ACR is the ratio between the concentration of albumin and creatinine in the urine. Since your urine albumin concentration is "zero", the ratio can't be calculated mathematically. The results of your tests are consistent with healthy kidneys. Dr. Anne. ...Read more
Albumin levels high? I am a 40 year old male. I recently took a urine test and saw that my albumin levels were high according to the lab results chart. The albumin level was 47. My doctor stated that they are a little elevated, but no to be concerned.
Albumin : Albumin is a protein. In general if our blood level of Albumin is high, it means we have good nutrition. Please be sure that you didn't have too much protein in your urine however, as this can mean that you have kidney disease which is more likely in you since you have diabetes. Please be sure the protein in your urine was not high. ...Read more
I had a blood test and 2 things were higher than the cutoff. In the urinalysis the urn total protein was 19.0 mg/dl and the urn red blood count was 10 hpf. Any ideas on what this means?
More info needed.: If you were having a period when the urinalysis was done, the red cells and protein could be explained by that. But not so fast! red cells are not normally seen in the urine at this amount, and neither is protein. Depending on your age and overall health, these finding could be early warning signs for important concerns like kidney disease or even a cancer. Find out the best next step for you! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
How was the test : Done? Trace protein may be insignificant and non-recurring. However, if you are diabetic or hypertensive it may be meaningful. All lab results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the test is usually in the best position to do that, so please discuss it with your doctor. ...Read more
My blood work showed a level of 228 for alkaline phosphatase test. Will i need more test? What could it mean?
Yes: An elevated alkaline phosphatase will need to be evaluated with additional blood tests to determine why it is elevated. Most commonly this is due to some form of insult to the liver, usually alcohol. But even a cold can cause an elevated alkaline phosphatase. If your other liver enzymes are elevated, particularly, ggt, your doctor will likely order an ultrasound. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
My doctor just ran some lab tests and found a small amount of blood in my urine. What might this mean?
I just got back some test results. In my blood, my glucose level is 111. In my urine my protein level is 25. Should I be concerned?
I had a protein level of 8.3 in my blood. Also had ketones in my urine, uti, seizure at the time of blood work. What can be some causes?
Dehydration is one: Although it shouldn't cause seizure it causes high protein in blood and ketones. Especially when associated with much alcohol or severe dieting. Of course diabetes is another cause but you would've known it by now. Also, urine sepsis could cause this bec of urine and blood infections cause nausea and vomiting and dehydration. Other rare conditions include myeloma but i doubt. ...Read more

Is it a concern to have a glucose number at 94 and somewhat high glucose in urine? I don't feel bad. Also what does a high red blood cell count mean?
Incomplete info: Random or fasting blood glucose of 94 is not abnormal. If it was fasting, you need to be careful. High glucose in urine is of concern, even with "normal" blood glucose. How high is the blood count? PCOS is one of the risk factors for diabetes. It would be prudent to discuss these items with your doctor. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more
My creatine is 70 and egfr is 79 is this low I am 46 female have trace of blood in urine but has come back normal should I be worried?
Should be OK: Your creatinine is probably 0.70. Egfr is good which means that your kidney is filtering out toxins well. You should ask your doctor if there were some red blood cells and protein also in urine. If there is then may need more investigation. My feeling is that every thing is ok since repeat urine analysis was ok. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I am a type one diabetic and in a urine dip gest my protein levels are above 300. I was being seen for a uti and was also told I had blood in my urine. Are these high protein results from diabetes complications or does that sound normal for a uti?
Likely UTI-related: UTIs may cause some protein and/or blood in the urine. And you may already have a baseline level of kidney damage from your type 1 diabetes. Get a urine culture, complete a course of appropriate antibiotics, then follow-up with your doctor for a repeat urinalysis, urine microalbumin, and blood chemistry +/- kidney ultrasound, as needed, to further evaluate. Compare to prior labs, if available. ...Read more
My doctors office detected trace blood in my urine and my test result says "Single organism less than 10,000 CFU/mL isolated." Could it be a uti?
Strong kidneys!: It sounds like your kidneys are working normally. That's what they're supposed to do -- clear metabolic products like creatinine from the blood, dumping it into the urine. The urine level might be especially high if you haven't been drinking lots of fluids lately, i.e. if the urine is relatively concentrated. In any case, this is a good sign, nothing to worry about. ...Read more
